This event supports Variety – The Children’s Charity to provide help to BC children and their families. To date, runners have raised over $800,000 for charity. The history of the event dates back to 1988, when the Vancouver International Marathon Society asked Pacific Road Runners to host a Half Marathon as a build-up event to the Vancouver Marathon. The club obliged and built one of Canada’s premier running events.
Race entry includes an exclusive tech tee, race bib with built-in timing chip, refreshments, gear check, on-course services including water, electrolyte, gels, and more, an exciting Finish Line in Yaletown, post-race celebrations with hot food and lively entertainment, age category awards, medals and more.
We look forward to celebrating with you and the local run community again this February at the First Half.
