Race Information

Established in 1998, The Scotiabank Half Marathon in Vancouver now consistently hosts over 5,000 runners, making it one of the largest half marathons in the area.  

The race takes runners on a scenic point-to-point course from UBC to Stanley Park. With a net drop of almost 300ft and a consistently competitive elite field, this event has produced the fastest half-marathon times ever run in BC. Combine this with numerous bands, water stations, great medals, a finish line party, and you’re set for your best half-marathon yet!

Not up for a half-marathon? The event also hosts a family-friendly 5k route which takes runners along the roads & paths of Stanley Park to a finish line by picturesque Second Beach.
