Steve Nash Fitness World & Sports Club is proud to be the Official Fitness Sponsor for the BMO Vancouver Marathon for four years running!
We hope you are already started on your training plan for the race! We know it was touch and go there for a little while with the snow, but things are looking up and spring is just around the corner!
So what's next?
We have a quick guide below on how to take your training for the BMO Vancouver Marathon up a notch–whether you're training for the full, the half, the 8K, or the relay.
Are you looking to better your time, or improve your endurance? Take a look at our Strength Training Program for Runners. Even amateur runners can benefit from some strength training mixed in with their running.
Weather not so great? There are many benefits to running indoors on the treadmill. We'll show you the ropes–like how fast you should be going, and at what incline.

Recovery is important, too. Don't forget to stretch, foam roll, and even take days off. Find out what specific stretches you should be doing as a runner.
Wondering what to eat or drink to best to fuel your body pre- and post-run? Check out our "Fuel for Runners" article for tips on how many calories and carbohydrates you need after exercising, as well as a few specific examples of what you can eat while you train.
Training in the winter months and even rainy spring months can be tricky. How many layers do you wear? You start off cold, and end up sweating through everything, right? Here are our suggestions for winter workout gear. You can also check out our Member Benefits page for discounts on gear from our brand partners, Nike and New Balance.
