Marathon Relay

Run the Award-winning Marathon as a Team!

The BMO Vancouver Marathon will return as a Virtual Race, May of 2021! Ranked one of the top destination marathons in the world, the BMO Vancouver Marathon is a scenic race that traditionally takes runners on a 42.2KM (26.2 miles) adventure past beaches, through natural parks, and along Vancouver’s Seawall – the world’s longest uninterrupted waterfront path. 

Split up the distance and conquer the award-winning BMO Vancouver Marathon as a team this year! The Relay event welcomes corporate groups, charity fundraisers, families and friends to experience the stunning BMO Vancouver Marathon course virtually. In teams of two, three or four, Relay participants may each run a portion of the virtual Marathon.

About the Relay

Registering Your Team

Run Relay and invite friends to pass the virtual baton!

  1. Team Captains may first select the ‘Virtual Relay – Team Captain‘ during race registration, create a team name and team code. Once registration is complete, on the ‘Thank You’ page, the Team Captain may then share an invite link with teammates.
  2. New teammates may then select ‘Virtual Relay – JOIN your team‘ and complete the requested information with the team name and unique code. If a team member is running multiple legs, you’ll be requested to register for each leg separately.

If you are the Team Captain and want to collect payment from teammates, please coordinate that exchange on your own behalf. Thank you.
