Thousands turned out to see the 43rd Annual BMO Vancouver Marathon on Sunday, May 4, 2014. Nearly 5,000 runners hit Vancouver’s streets, from 40 countries, to race in the largest international marathon event in Canada – a Boston qualifier, and the city’s only full 42.2-kilometre race.

We are so proud, Hapa Izakaya’s very own Chef Daiji Tanaka placed 134th, coming in a 3:08;11. Great job Daiji!
