Ease into Canada’s Most Scenic Event
The BMO Vancouver Marathon returns as a Virtual Race this May and the 8KM is a breeze through the park! A shorter challenge than a Half Marathon or 10KM, but equally as rewarding, this race is a great way to lace up and get your feet wet in the Vancouver running scene at Canada’s most scenic running event. Traditionally you may run the 8KM and enjoy the tranquil shade from cedar and hemlock trees in Stanley Park before breezing through Coal Harbour to the bustling Downtown Finish Line, where you’ll celebrate with Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay runners and amidst cheering spectators. This year, you’re encouraged to run virtually, provided it’s safe to do so in your geographical area. Join this year’s Virtual Race to collect your commemorative tech tee and other unique race rewards! Join in now!
