Ranked a Top 10 Destination Marathon by Forbes for its stunning beauty and scenic route, ranked “most exotic” marathon by CNN, the BMO Vancouver Marathon leads runners on a 42.2 kilometre journey through parks (Stanley Park Seawall, Pacific City Park and Queen Elizabeth Park), neighbourhoods and bustling city streets.

Panoramica

Starting near the top of Little Mountain at Queen Elizabeth Park, in the centre of the city, runners head south along the heritage-designated Cambie Street, west through Kerrisdale and the University of British Columbia campus, back into the city alongside breath-taking Jericho and Kits beaches, finally circling our coveted Stanley Park Seawall to  finish at the city’s pulse in the downtown corridor near the Vancouver Convention Centre.


BMO Vancouver Marathon Trivia

  • The race started in 1972 when a small group of 46 runners ran five loops of Stanley Park to complete the first Vancouver International Marathon (known as Lions Gate Road Runners International Marathon). The marathon grew over the next few years to 300 participants in 1977. However the event suffered a major setback in 1976 when a participant, Dr. Leslie Truelove, collapsed mid-race and died due to aneurysm. In Truelove's memory, the Dr. Leslie Truelove Memorial Trophy has been awarded ever since to the first male finisher in the 50+ age category.
  • The 1983 race became known as the "Long Marathon" after runners were misdirected during its running — adding an extra 561 yards to the race.
