But, and this is important, it’s also a lot of fun for the rest of us too. How do we know this? Each year, VCBW has a theme, and this year’s theme is “Music Food Beer.”

Since 1972, runners have been dashing through the 42.2 kilometre (26.2 mile) course that makes up the BMO Vancouver Marathon. Last year, 5,000 participants ran through three parks, six beaches and 12 neighbourhoods before making it to the finish line, all while being cheered along by 100,000 spectators and excellent local bands! Along with those running the full distance, there were also another 12,500 more runners completing the half-marathon and 8K courses.
