Vancouver Marathon

Vancouver loves to run. And running in Vancouver is a beautiful thing. It's like spring. It gets your juices flowing.

First up is The Vancouver Sun Run on Sunday, April 15. It is the run for absolutely anyone at any level of fitness. Last year, it attracted over 49,000 happy runners, walkers and strollers. Vancouver's cherry blossoms will be in full bloom and along with the endorphins, sure to put a smile on every face!

Next is the Vancouver Marathon and Half-Marathon on Sunday, May 6.  Last year was it's 40th anniversary run. It is your chance to test your mettle against the world's running elite. Many out of towners are already in training for this one and the runs attract many thousands of foreign visitors. Quite an experience - book early!

Last of the really big runs is Scotiabank's Half-Marathon and 5K Run on Sunday, June 24. This popular run benefits some fine local charities and attracts the best of the amateur running community.

All three runs are laid out along some of the world's most scenic shorelines. Vancouver's fresh spring air is just one more reason to breathe deep.

Stay with us in our downtown West End location and you will be within easy walking distance of all three runs' Start and Finish lines. If you miss out on our jacuzzi-equipped Shangri-La Suite, be sure to let us know if we can help to arrange an after-run professional massage. No kidding!
