The marathon promotes Vancouver’s active lifestyle, engaging participants and community partners to create a positive and memorable experience.
There will be approximately 15,000 participants.
5,000 spectators will be cheering on the participants along the route.
Botanical Garden maintained from northbound SW Marine Drive and westbound on West 16th Ave.
Rose Garden Parkade maintained via East Mall or Chancellor Blvd.
Driving FROM Wesbrook Village, travel eastbound on SW Marine Drive all the way to Richmond
Driving TO Wesbrook Village during the two-hour road closure will be more challenging. To avoid delays and long detour routes, it is highly recommended to avoid travel during this period. If travel is essential, the detour routes available include SW Marine Drive via Dunbar Street or Blenheim Street, or alternatively via West 10th Avenue/University Blvd to Wesbrook Mall. Note – expect delays crossing West 16th Ave. as traffic will only be let through when there are gaps in between runners.
