"The BMO Vancouver Marathon completely aligns with and supports Brita’s company values of being a healthy, energized and sustainable organization. It was great to constantly be in contact with the participants at the Sport Expo and 20 water stations where Brita filtered 30,000 litres of water for run participants helping to provide something that created a strong connection with the environment and the community. The 2010 BMO Vancouver Marathon event was exciting and Brita was proud to help the marathon go bottled water free! We had great success at the Sport Expo as well…the people were pumped and the energy was unlimited!"
Scott Kinnear and Jeff Simmonds on behalf of Brita® (Water Filtration) and FilterForGood.ca

"The 2010 BMO Vancouver Marathon was a great event! From the expo, the people, the energy and excitement, it was such a high for everyone! I had the pleasure to see many people over the weekend, and feel their energy, emotions and sense of accomplishment. I only have positive comments about the event and the team that put it together! Congrats!"

"I am very pleased that Contact Printing had the opportunity to support the Sponsor Reception night for the 2010 BMO Vancouver Marathon. It was a great way to link with many new people and to build new networks and business opportunities. Our partnership with the BMO Vancouver Marathon has been mutually beneficial and we look forward to our continued involvement and build upon this year's momentum. We also enjoyed our experience at the Brita Sport Expo…it was fun to get caught up in all the excitement and energy!"

"Congratulations to the entire team for putting on a successful 2010 BMO Vancouver Marathon. Saucony’s participation at the Brita Expo was a big hit…we had lots of fun (and success) with the effective layout and interaction it allowed us for the many thousands that attended. The flow of people was well planned as we were able to intermingle very well, and the close connection with our retailer’s booth, Running Room, worked really well. We really liked the concept of being able to convert our booth into a participant lounge on Sunday. Looking forward to repeating the experience and building the energy in 2011!"
Brad Mrakava, Director of Sales & Marketing

"What a great event it was awesome everyone said it was well organized can't wait for next year I love to see a 30 k added to it I would be up for that for sure."

"The rest of the race went great! What a super event. Everyone was talking about how well organized it was and how nice the course route was. Plenty of shade cover, which is very much appreciated by those of us who tend to overheat when we are out there. Considering it was the first time for the event, I thought they got excellent participation for both distances."

"Thanks so much. All of the group from the Running Room Westhills Calgary had a great time and we were all smiling and so proud at the end of the race! Our coach Jennette Coates was the reason we had great success...and the flat course didn't hurt."

"Thanks... Had such a great time. Excellent organization and great people. My nephew Dylan Snadhu came second to last in over 7 hours and your crew stayed open for him, even kept the pancake and eggs warm so he could eat. Classy all the way around."

"First class event today. I ran the half, was very impressed with teh course, fast as advertised. Great start and finish location. Will definetely bring more runners from our club in Calgary next year! Well Done and thanks to a great bunch of volunteers!!"

"My Dad and I didn't find the smoke to be a bother one bit, and I shaved a whole 13 minutes from my PB, so the race course was obviously perfect for us. Thanks again, and thank goodness for the little bit of rain before the race!"

"Way to go on these races! I ran the 10km & Half and you did a great job with both the course and the running venue."

"Yesterday was the first 5K I have ever done and I throughly enjoyed it. I thought the race was very well organized"

"Thank you Edmonton for the great run!! The new venue was good and you ran an excellent event. I should mention however that "suddenly fast and flat" became suddenly hilly and challenging in the Highlands!! Thanks to all the volunteers especially John the 4:30 bunny. I did a personal best and both my husband and I qualified for Boston. Thank you again."

"As a participant in this past weekend’s race, I wanted to extend kudos and thanks to whoever was responsible for organizing the volunteers for the event.

"Well done, can’t wait until next year’s event!"

"Really enjoyed the weekend. Had a great day at the Kids race, really enjoyed the extra touches such as pony rides, petting zoo, face painting etc. The decathalon was a good idea as well."

"Loved the course Sunday!! Finally a boston qualifier!!"

"My legs feel more or less as they did one week ago, so i guess its time to plan for next year! Thanks very much for a Top Quality event. Even as a late entrant, I got my money's worth and will be sure to recommend this race to anyone appreciating the hard work of a well organized ROC."

"At run club Wednesday and again today at our local race event I have had numerous people telling me how excellent the BMO Okanagan Marathon was this year. They particularly mentioned the volunteers and marshals saying how very supportive and helpful they were. Thought I would pass the kudos on as we know compliments don't always reach the people who deserve them."
Jacqui, Running Room

"My 5 year old ran in the BMO Kids Run for Kids and I've never seen him so proud of himself and I don't know if I've ever been so proud either. You guys really put off quite an event."

"First, I wanted so say thank you for a fabulous Half Marathon experience. I thought the course, the organization and the volunteers were all first rate. I even appreciated that the rain and wind died down within a few kilometers and the weather was perfect (from my perspective) for the run. Thank you to everybody involved in organizing and running this event."
Michael M.

"I just wanted to thank you for all your help in making this chance to run a Half Marathon in Kelowna possible. I really appreciated you being there with my race package and showing my how to put the chip on my shoe. The run was so well organized. I was impressed at all the volunteers needed to make it happen. WOW!"
