Why the BMO Vancouver Marathon 2016 is a Springtime must

BMO Vancouver Marathon

Don’t miss out on your chance to take part in Vancouver’s only marathon, alongside thousands of athletes from around the world, at the BMO Vancouver Marathon 2016.

Celebrating 45 years, the BMO Vancouver Marathon is the city’s only marathon, and one of the biggest athletic events of the year. With runners from over 50 countries, the internationally renowned event features 70% shoreline views, as well as a virtual tour of Vancouver’s stunning scenery – from the mountains and ocean to urban landscapes and heritage sites.

The BMO Vancouver Marthon is one of the last instances of a non-profit organization running an event to grow the sport of running, promote healthy living, to support the work of charities at home and around the world – and the whole event is run by a volunteer Board of Directors and over 4,000 volunteer workers.

On top of the Marathon, the event also plays host to a Half Marathon, 8K Race, a Kid’s Run, and a 2.5K Walk. No matter your skill level or experience, there’s an event for you to get out and enjoy the city along with the rest of the world.

Registration is now open. Sign up for the event at the BMO Vancouver Marathon website.
