Leanne Larsen and Marielle "Mar" Lyon[1] are a team of Teammates & Mentors on The Amazing Race Canada: Heroes Edition.

They were initially brushed off as cannon fodder by the fan base but shocked everyone by winning first place. From that point on they remained a fixture in the top of the standings. Like Natalie & Meaghan, their positive attitudes, calm approach to the race, resiliency, and surprising abilities in almost every task led them to be a surprising fan favorite of the season. This along with both being performers in a season heavy in choreography tasks, led many to think they would win the season. Despite leaving the mouse task in first place, the next 3 tasks caused them to fall further and further behind culminating in Leanne having a panic attack at the zombie paintball task and taking a 2-hour penalty. This allowed for the trailing Dylan & Kwame to catch up eliminating the cheerleaders in 6th.

Leanne and Mar have been teammates on the Argos Cheer Team for three years. They first met at a holiday party where they both bonded over their goofy, outgoing personalities. Mar encouraged Leanne to try out for the team and the rest is history! Leanne cites her mother as her biggest inspiration. She has shown her how to be selfless and caring her whole life. Mar left Thunder Bay at 17 and has been living on her own ever since. Between their work and their personal lives, it's clear they are both fiercely independent and put 110% into everything they do. They want to redefine what it means to be a cheerleader and run the Race of their lives!
