Last year, to celebrate its 40th anniversary, the BMO Vancouver Marathon changed its course to take better advantage of what our city has to offer. But don’t worry it still works its way through Kitsilano.
This year, the marathon is on Sunday, May 5th and once again organizers are doing a great job connecting with the communities that the race passes through.
If you’re planning on watching the race on Sunday morning be sure to swing by your neighbourood Starbucks to pick up a customizable cheer poster.
If you’re not a fan and just want to avoid a bad case of road rage, be sure to remind yourself of the road closures which are included after the jump.
