Vancouver is revered as one of the best destination races in the world, and the largest in Canada, BMO Vancouver Marathon welcomes runners from more than 65 countries each year to compete in a full-length marathon, half-marathon, 8km race and kids’ run.
Is a scenic Boston Qualifier that takes runners on a 42.2KM (26.2 miles) adventure past beaches, through natural parks, and along Vancouver’s Seawall – the world’s longest uninterrupted waterfront path. Experience this world-class event for yourself!
The marathon route is a tourist draw, winding along city landmarks, parks and beaches, and ocean-hugging seawall with 70 percent of the course boasting water views.
Runners and non-runners alike are invited to attend BMO Vancouver Marathon’s free Health, Sports and Lifestyle Expo, which kicks off marathon weekend at the Vancouver Convention Centre. On race day, runners and supporters are treated to ongoing entertainment, musical performances and a lively street festival. In 2019, event organizers will introduce race day block parties featuring family-friendly activities, live music and tasty snacks fueling supporters as they cheer runners towards the finish line.
Participants are also given the opportunity to raise funds for charity through RUN4HOPE, BMO Vancouver Marathon’s official charity program. To date, RUN4HOPE has helped runners donate more than $15 million to various causes.
With the whole city behind you, you’re bound to reach your goal! Discover one of the world’s ‘most livable cities’ by foot and witness the community support that has encapsulated the event since its inception in 1972.
