Past Champions

Vancouver’s only marathon started in 1972 when Tom Howard of Surrey, BC, led a handful of marathon runners around five loops of Stanley Park to complete the first “British Columbia Marathon.” Now, the BMO Vancouver Marathon has grown into one of Canada’s greatest running events with races for everyone including a Marathon, Half Marathon, 8KM, Marathon Relay, Walk and Kids Run.
