BMO Vancouver Marathon Race Map

The annual BMO Vancouver Marathon takes place this Sunday May 6, 2012. Unlike the Vancouver Sun Run, this marathon will impact more neighbourhoods throughout the city. Expect traffic disruptions/road closures in many of the city’s downtown and West Side neighbourhoods.

Also to all you Vancouverites that enjoy a good  Sea Wall walk on a hopefully sunny Sunday, it will be closed to pedestrian traffic from 9:00am to 12:00pm from Second Beach to Lumberman’s Arch.
