Please plan accordingly.

Race morning will be below average seasonal temperatures in Vancouver. Take advantage of Gear Check inside the Roundhouse Community Centre pre and post-race. Any clothing left unclaimed near the Start Line will be donated to charity.

Potentially icy sections may also exist due to the weather, particularly by the Lighthouse near Brockton Point and along the Seawall from Lion’s Gate Bridge to Third Beach. Please be careful while racing.

Safety is a top priority for our non-profit and we are dedicated to delivering a safe and memorable event for all. We’ll be taking additional steps to salt potential concern areas race morning. Thank you. Enjoy the run!

Please also note that under Granville Street Bridge there is new road surface with temporary ramps. Please proceed with caution as you enter and exit this section of road. At the end of the new surface there is a steep gradient.

To assist in communicating key messages, the Society will also rely on the Event Alert System below.

This Event Alert System is a standardized protocol used at events to ensure participants have a great experience and are prepared for race conditions. Race status signs will be placed near the Start and Finish Lines, plus shared on the event website and social media. This simple, standardized status is updated by race organizers in consultation with meteorologists and other officials.

Runners, volunteers, and supporters are encouraged to watch for event updates and plan accordingly.

Safety is a top priority. As a local non-profit, we are dedicated to delivering a safe and memorable experience for runners, spectators, and volunteers. Thank you as well to the City of Vancouver and Vancouver Parks Board for helping us plan ahead and mitigate potential risks.
