Ever wonder how environmentally friendly your favourite race is?
Teen runner saves a life before finishing a race.
In honour of tonight’s Stanley Cup Final between Vancouver and Boston I decided to profile the Vancouver Marathon, I already profiled Boston here.
The Vancouver Marathon is one of the biggest marathons in Canada. It is one I would like to some point. For me any excuse to return to the west coast is a good one. For those of you who have not been Vancouver is definitely worth a trip. With the mountains and the Pacific Ocean in the background wherever you go you won’t regret it.
In looking at the course map, one aspect stands out, Stanley Park! The chance to run through Stanley Park makes this marathon worth doing on its own.
This is definitely one That I would like to do at some point , if anything just for an excuse to go back to Vancouver.
