    A nice tour of a great city featuring many of the must go to destinations. Hilly in and around UBC. Marathon wise save legs for last 10K to enjoy tour around Stanley Park–not like I did. (Don’t forget to visit the Museum of Anthropology (MOA)) at UBC when in Vancouver to see its amazing collection of Pacific NW First Nation art).

    Vancouver Marathon is really a very beautiful race. Even on a rainy day I really enjoyed the race. The first 5k downhill into downtown followed by a few smooth uphill parts. The race is of course perfectly organized!

    This was my first full marathon, 8 months postpartum no less, which means it was difficult for me. It’s hilly, but not terrible. The fans and volunteers are amazing, and everything is well organized. It makes a good destination race, Vancouver is a beautiful city.

    Vancouver is beautiful, well-organized, and the weather was fantastic. Great energy, swag, aid stations. It should have been perfect. Instead, I chased the pacer (a 10:1 pacer from the Running Room) for 16km and blew up spectacularly.
