The City of Vancouver has a 1hr 15min time limit (9:15 am) on the road closures for the 5K, or 15 minutes per kilometre pace. Please do not enter the 5K event if you are unable to meet the time restriction.

Participants must be able to maintain a 15 minute per kilometre pace as roads will reopen to traffic based on a 1hr 15min finishing time. Participants who are still on course after this point will be asked to move to the sidewalk and continue on their own as informed pedestrians, obeying all rules of the road and traffic crossings. The finish line of the event will officially remain open until 9:15am. Finishers within this time will receive a medal. After this time the finish line and timing will be removed and the event closed.

Under no circumstance may participants be on the course before the official start time. Beginning before the official start will result in disqualification. Any person on the course prior to the official start is not considered as part of the event. ***Start Lines for both the Half and 5K will CLOSE 10min AFTER THE SCHEDULED START TIME
