Okanagan Marathon 2015
For over two decades, the City of Kelowna has hosted the Okanagan Marathon. This year will mark the 21st Annual BMO Okanagan Marathon and will once again take place on the Thanksgiving Long Weekend at City Park, Kelowna.
The Okanagan Family Festival Weekend includes a 42.2km BMO Marathon Run/Walk, 21.1km Half Marathon Run/Walk, 10km Run/Walk, 5km Fun Run/Walk, and a BMO ABC Kids Activity Center and Fun Run. These events will once again take participants on a route along Kelowna’s beautiful Okanagan Lake waterfront.
In addition, there is the 3km Free Running Room Friendship Run/Walk with John Stanton, the founder of the Running Room, a Free Sports Expo and Kids Zone in City Park. This Event draws national attention as it is a certified Boston Marathon Qualifier for 2017.
Whether running, volunteering or cheering, there is something for the entire family at the Family Festival Weekend. The BMO Okanagan Marathon is a wonderful way to enjoy a fit and healthy weekend while helping to raise funds for the Sunshine Foundation Dreams for Kids.
