Race Information

The annual BMO Sunshine Coast April Fool’s Run presented by Coast Cable is still, after over 40 years, one of BC's best kept running secrets.

This half marathon happens every April in Gibsons BC, and features a point to point course starting in Gibsons and finishing in Sechelt. The Fool's Half offers a rural setting, great finisher medals, a low entry fee, and friendly West Coast hospitality.

If you're looking for a new half marathon to add to your list this one is worth the quick ferry ride to go and race. Additional options include 2 and 4-person relays, early start for walkers, and free kids run.
