Vancouver International Marathon Society

The Vancouver International Marathon Society is the non-profit volunteer-based organization responsible for the annual BMO Vancouver Marathon, Granville Island Turkey Trot, and Fall Classic. The Society delivers running events that promote Vancouver’s active lifestyle, engaging participants and community partners to create positive and memorable experiences.

The Society relies on a dedicated group of volunteer Board of Directors and over 4,000 invaluable volunteers with a common thread – a passion for sport and running, along with a commitment to promoting healthy living and showcasing the beauty of Vancouver. Through its three marquee events, the Society now offers races for everyone with the following distances:

  • Kids Run
  • 2.5KM Walk
  • 5KM
  • 8KM
  • 10KM
  • 21.1KM Half Marathon
  • Marathon Relay (with approx. race distances of 12, 12, 5 and 13KM)
  • Vancouver`s only marathon! (42.2KM)

Those who run the BMO Vancouver Marathon, Granville Island Turkey Trot and Fall Classic in the same calendar year will also be rewarding a special RUNVAN® Hat-trick award.
