BMO Vancouver Marathon wins Readers’ Choice Awards with Get Out There Magazine
For the second year in a row, the BMO Vancouver Marathon is named ‘Best Marathon in Western Canada’ by Get Out There Magazine readers
Vancouver, BC – Mar 2, 2016 –
Outdoor enthusiasts and runners across Western Canada have voted the BMO Vancouver Marathon as the Best Marathon in Western Canada in Get Out There’s Magazine’s annual awards.
Having received this award in 2012, 2014, and now 2015, the BMO Vancouver Marathon continues to be a favourite Canadian race. “This acknowledgement is a testament to the community that supports the BMO Vancouver Marathon. This community of runners, their friends and family, plus 4,000 volunteers, many sponsors, exhibitors and other community partners, make the BMO Vancouver Marathon a true community event”, adds Charlene Krepiakevich, the Executive Director of the Vancouver International Marathon Society, the non-profit organization responsible for the BMO Vancouver Marathon.
Get Out There Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards annually recognize Canada’s top races, businesses, places and events, as voted by the readers. The magazine is Canada’s source for endurance sports, outdoor recreation, adventure and play.
The new Reader’s Choice award from Get Out There Magazine further validates the claim that the BMO Vancouver Marathon is a ‘must-do’ race.
The BMO Vancouver Marathon is not only a Canadian favourite, but is recognized around the world as a top destination race. Last month, the BMO Vancouver Marathon was also ranked by Forbes Travel as one of the 12 ‘Top Marathons Worth Traveling For’ thanks in part to the course’s spectacular views of snow-capped mountains and shoreline vistas.
This year, the BMO Vancouver Marathon weekend features six different races, offering something for everyone. Join in for the 2.5KM Walk or Kids Run in Stanley Park on Saturday, April 30. On Sunday, May 1, 2016, you can run, cheer or volunteer with the Marathon, Marathon Relay, Half Marathon or 8KM race.
