About the event:
The BMO Vancouver Marathon is an annual race held on the first Sunday of May each year in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. As the second largest international marathon event in Canada, it has a certified running distance of 26 miles and 385 yards long. The most recent marathon saw over 14,000 people participate on May 4, 2014, with over 3700 completing the marathon distance.

The race started in 1972 when a small group of 46 runners ran five loops of Stanley Park to complete the first Vancouver International Marathon (known as Lions Gate Road Runners International Marathon).Ranked a Top 10 Destination Marathon by Forbes for its stunning beauty and scenic route, ranked “most exotic” marathon by CNN, the BMO Vancouver Marathon leads runners on a 42.2 kilometre journey through parks, neighbourhoods and bustling city streets. Enjoy the fresh-air alongside natural beaches and breathe a sense of wonder at the backdrop of surrounding mountains.

Starting near the top of Little Mountain at Queen Elizabeth Park, in the centre of the city, runners head south along the heritage-designated Cambie Street, west through Kerrisdale and the University of British Columbia campus, back into the city alongside breath-taking Jericho and Kits beaches, finally circling our coveted Stanley Park Seawall to finish at the city’s pulse in the downtown corridor near the Vancouver Convention Centre.
