A Community Event!

This is a race for runners by runners!

The Pacific Road Runners are extremely organized and make sure that all details are taken care of. It is a perfect course for running fast times. This race is at sea level, mainly flat, and has no major turns which is advantageous for distance runners. Their communication, venue, set-up for runners awards, and post-race food is all excellent.

Lisa Harvey, Athlete

...this event is one of the most well organized, and professionally run races that I have participated in. The race experience its self is top notch. Of all the races in Vancouver, this is one of the most highly anticipated events. It sells out every year and the crowd support and community involvement is excellent. There is an awesome energy and positive vibe that surrounds this race.
