Maria Marciano

Runner

Maria Marciano is a five year veteran with the RCMP in Port Alberni. Maria is a mental wellness proponent, striving to make mental health a priority at the detachment by working as the Co-Chair for the Detachment Wellness Committee.

Originally from Ontario; she is married and has two fur-babies. 

As an avid runner from a young age, she loved the speed and adrenaline from sprinting, but has since fallen in love with the stamina and mental toughness of long distance running. Maria has completed three full marathons (along with countless half marathons, 10 km races and 5 km races) and recently obtained a Boston Marathon Qualifying Time. While Maria didn’t start running as a way to de-stress, it has certainly provided her with an outlet. 

Maria is excited to use her love of running to help bring awareness to an issue that is very important to her.
