On-course

BMO Vancouver Marathon

Pace Yourself

BMO Vancouver Marathon
Pace Bunnies can traditionally be found on the Marathon and Half Marathon courses! They are located in each corral to help you maintain your pace and finish with your goal race time. Most of the Pace Bunnies provided by Running Room consistently run 10 minutes and then walk 1 minute for “10s and 1s”. You may also utilize the Running Room Virtual Advisor pre-race.

Pace yourself and submit your time post-race!


Cheer Stations

BMO Vancouver Marathon
Traditionally you can experience the energy of thousands of spectators cheering you on and helping you stay motivated on Race Day, with live entertainment and music also on-course.

This year, we’re asking for you to share your support on social @bmovanmarathon @runvancanada #bmovm #runvan. While we may be distanced physically, let’s stay socially connected! We’re looking forward to connecting with you online.

There are no road closures with the Virtual Race. Be alert of pedestrian and vehicle traffic.


Hydration Stations

BMO Vancouver Marathon. May since 1972
Traditionally, CLIF products and bananas are provided at food stations on the Marathon and Half Marathon courses. Nuun, the official electrolyte drink of the BMO Vancouver Marathon, is also provided at most stations and Water is provided at all hydration stations on course. Plan ahead, and gather these products in advance of your Virtual Race pre-race. One option is to potentially include a route that loops your house or fan section. ie. you can potentially set-up your own aid station from your home.

Stay hydrated during your Virtual Race!
