2021 Virtual Race

Virtual Results

Established in 1999, the Vancouver Half Marathon is one of Canada Running Series’ flagship events in British Columbia. 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.

While this year’s event will be virtual, our team is working hard to deliver an experience that celebrates the things we love about running in Vancouver – the beautiful scenery of Canada’s west coast, the feel-good energy of moving for a cause and giving back through the Charity Challenge.

Whether you are looking for a serious challenge or a fun activity for the whole family, the Vancouver Half Marathon will keep you moving. Participants can choose from the 21.1K, 10K, 5K and 1K Kids Race or challenge themselves to complete our new Repeat (5K & 10K) or Threepeat (5K, 10K & 21K) Challenges. Featuring designs inspired by iconic west coast landscapes & landmarks, all participants will receive a souvenir shirt, finisher medal & other race partner goodies.

We have also created some amazing training plans to help you reach your distance goal, while having some fun along the way. We promise to keep you motivated throughout your training with regular prize draws featuring swag from our race partners.
