Over 2,700 runners and walkers participated in the 2017 BMO Okanagan Marathon. David Eikelboom from Whitehorse, Yukon finished first in the men’s marathon with a time of 2:34:27, and Kelowna’s Claire Young won the women’s marathon in a time of 3:06:12.
The event also raised $6,800 in support of charities like The Sunshine Foundation of Canada, which assists Canadian children living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. Thank you to the sponsors, volunteers and participants for making this a successful event once again.
