START YOUR RUNNING JOURNEY AT THE TOP OF THE CITY. With gorgeous views overlooking Vancouver, begin your race at the top of Little Mountain and experience a start unlike any other. The picturesque Start Line at Queen Elizabeth Park is located at the top of Little Mountain – a small ascent in the centre of the city. For runners, this is where the excitement kicks off; this is where the magic happens!

After taking a free Canada Line ride or shuttle bus to the Start Line, gather with friends at the entrance of the park just off Cambie Boulevard with its famous 100 year-old trees. Next, experience a motivational pre-race ceremony with music, warm up, and an upbeat welcome from City dignitaries, with breathtaking views and budding blooms of spring.

The BMO Vancouver Marathon Start Line is certainly a special experience that you won’t want to miss!
