Events this May

Friday, May 3rd, 2013

Here are some exciting events to look out for this month of May.

BMO VANCOUVER MARATHON
SUNDAY MAY 6th
The Vancouver Marathon has to be one of the stunning courses around. Starting off at the gorgeous Queen Elizabeth Park which has 360 degree views of the city and its mountains, and then winding around the South and West of the City along the UBC Campus grounds through to downtown and around Stanley Park and back to the downtown core again, not only do the participants get to stretch their legs but they also will heighten their senses with the spectacular scenery that this city has to offer!
What is even better this year is that it looks likely the Weather is going to be on our side, with the thermometer quite possibly reaching the low 20s C (Mid to high 60s if you work with Farenheit).
So whether or not you are a participant or a spectator, get out there and enjoy the day and make sure to grab the Sunscreen!
