 Matt Wiltse of Las Vegas Wins Surf City USA Men's Marathon
For the first time in its 14 year history, the Surf City USA Marathon took on a distinctly international flavor with three “foreign” runners capturing first place medals. Canadians Karen Warrendorf (age 36) and Steven Osaduik (age 30) won the women’s marathon and men’s half respectively, while 31 year-old Aussie Karen Barlow was the top women’s half marathoner. The lone American champ was 33 year-old Matt Wiltse of Las Vegas who won the men’s marathon in a time of 2:37:19.

More than 400 runners raised $200,000 to send some 3,000 wheelchairs to Haiti and other places around the world.
