Established in 1999, the Vancouver Half Marathon is one of Canada Running Series’ flagship events in Western Canada. Known for its scenic ocean-side routes and tremendous fundraising efforts in support of the Charity Challenge, this event attracts thousands of runners every year.

Whether you’re looking for a serious challenge or a fun activity for the whole family, the Vancouver Half Marathon will keep you moving. Participants can choose to run in-person or virtual options in the 21K, 5K, and 1K Kids Run or challenge themselves to complete our new Threepeat Challenge (In-Person 21K + Virtual 10K + Virtual 5K). Featuring designs inspired by iconic West Coast landscapes & landmarks, all participants will receive an ASICS souvenir shirt, finisher’s medal & other race partner goodies.
