What are the processing fees that I’m charged with my registration?

By | Registration, Registration | No Comments

Race Roster collects a fee on all transactions (processing fees) as this is an industry standard. Their team assists our races from beginning to end, and this fee allows them to provide meaningful customer support to all participants, covers merchant costs of processing the transaction, the technology costs of developing an online registration platform, includes event cancellation protection for participants in the case of an emergency, and ensures that the online race experience is seamless for all.

We understand that some people aren’t familiar with where these fees are spent, and may think they are an irrelevant added cost, though without them, we would not be able to host the events that we do.

How can I get to the race?

By | Race Day | No Comments

Bike 

The best and easiest way to get to the Start Area is to bike, we offer complimentary and secure Bike Valet right beside the Start/Finish Line. Free bike valet is open 7:30am-11am. 

Transit 

The start line is a short walk from either Waterfront station or Stadium-Chinatown Skytrain stations. 

The following bus routes arrive near the start line: R5 Express bus (Hastings St.), Route 19 (Metrotown to Stanley Park) and Route 22 (Knight to Downtown). 

To plan your trip, use the Translink Trip Planner to find the best options to the start line on race morning. Be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes before the 8:30am race start. 

By Car 

The best option is to have someone drop you off near the race start – pay attention to road closures (link to event notice).   Alternatively, there is street parking and a number of paid parking lots nearby, including:  

Easy Park Lot 2 on the corner of Cambie St. And Pender St and Advanced Parking Lot #220 on the corner of Cambie St. And Dunsmuir St. 

When planning your arrival, please pay attention to road closures.
