BMO Vancouver Marathon 2009
Sunday May 3, 2009 saw the 38th running of the BMO Vancouver Marathon. Smallbox is proud to sponsor this annual event and to partner with Red Rocket Creative Strategies on the website design and development.
The running of the marathon capped off nearly a week of events beginning on Thursday with the launch of the Expo. Over the course of four days Smallbox had the opportunity to meet a significant number of the 13,000 runners involved with this year's marathon as they wound their way around the Expo tents to pick up their runner's packages.
On Race day the full 42.2 km marathon started early at 6am. Thankfully the rain held off as Calgary's Benard Onsare crossed the finish line at 2:28:26. Mary Akor of Hawthorne, California won the women's race with a time of 2:46:24.
The marathon website received more than 38,000 visits on race day as runners and spectators logged in to check the official finish times for all runners.
Smallbox looks forward to next year's event, as the countdown is already under way. Visit www.bmovanmarathon.ca for more information.
