A Half-Marathon in Vancouver is more than a run.
First-timer? Fifth-timer going for a personal best? Weekend run warrior? Just want a reason to check-out the streets of spectacular Vancouver? We like your style! Running a Half Marathon is a challenge and a half. Exponential satisfaction is the result. You train hard, and for the love of running and all its benefits, your life will never be the same after your journey. Just imagine the feeling…the energy, the people, the mountains guiding you through the cityscape, the ocean tides tirelessly encouraging you to continue on or step-it-up. Why? Because it is about passion, strength, determination, health, fitness and living. We admire your courage; you’ve just taken the first step in the right direction.
Run Vancouver’s premier urban Half Marathon event featuring a fast downhill start with the most spectacular skyline and North Shore mountain views combined with a journey past the city’s eclectic iconic landmarks.
Starting near the top of Little Mountain at Queen Elizabeth Park at the centre of the city, runners descend down the heritage-designated Cambie Street, around BC Place Stadium. Experience historic Chinatown, breathtaking English Bay, hip Yaletown, the diverse WestEnd and our coveted oxygen-boosting, Stanley Park. Breathing in the forest-ocean air, energized racers pave their way through the sophisticated Coal Harbour neighbourhood and merge with marathon runners for a stunning big city finish in the heart of the downtown corridor near the Vancouver Convention Centre.
