The non-profit Vancouver International Marathon Society annually organizes the First Half, BMO Vancouver Marathon, Granville Island Turkey Trot and Fall Classic. Our mission is to deliver running events that promotes Vancouver’s active lifestyle, engaging participants and community partners to create positive and memorable experiences.
To acknowledge the special role communities play in bringing race day to life, we’ve introduced a new Community Challenge program – the goal of which is to create a movement that will ignite support and excitement for sport. Our objective is to create community spirit and support community groups.
The Community Challenge recognizes and reward communities that support the event in a few ways, including by providing prizes to the largest team and most impactful specator groups. Check out each race page for details on how to win!
Cheer on your friends and family! Bring your best cheer signs; paint your faces; shake your hips; and get your best turkey costume out of the closet! You don’t have to be a runner to enjoy in the race day excitement.
