Somewhere in British Columbia, right now, a family is struggling to come to terms with the news that their child has a life-threatening illness. They need to leave for BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. Immediately. They have no place to stay and can’t afford a hotel. Worse still, they know their child will need intensive treatment, possibly for a year or more. This is the heartbreaking reality that thousands of families with seriously ill children have to face every year. The only hope for some? Ronald McDonald House British Columbia—a home-away-from-home for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. It costs $75 to pay for one night of accommodation for a family at Ronald McDonald House BC. Help take us closer to our goal of raising 30,000 nights of funding and give more hope to a family when they need it most.

Important course update!

We have about 1km that we run on a residential road, Beach Grove Road, on this section we need participants to keep within the coned area, the road is still open to traffic so if you are passing please  try to pass within this marked area, if you are running beside a friend please go follow the leader on this section, single row, to help runners stay within the marked route.  Thank you for your cooperation in keeping the neighbourhood residents happy!

To help with this area we will be doing a staggered start:

8:30am all Marathon and the first leg of the Marathon Relay
8:33am all Half Marathoners
8:36am all 10Kers
8:39am all 5Kers

  • VERY IMPORTANT that 5Kers, leave with the correct group, you have a turn around in the first section of the course so you don’t want to get lost in the crowd and have to fight through hundreds of runners on the way back to the finish line. Please leave with the 8:39am staggered start.

This means your Boundary Bay Marathon Relay team will have 4 people and at each one of these "Leg/Water Stations" we will have a water station for the marathoners, half marathoners and for your relay team members. We ask that your team members help with the water stations as they wait for their team members to arrive and please help after your leg to cheer on the other relay members and marathoners while helping with the water station. I know this might seem like a lot to ask but in order for us to make this relay and marathon work we need you to be a part of the show!

You will have to pass your team relay timing tag from one team member to another as the official leg switch is happening. You will only receive a team relay time if you have your timing tag and if you lose your timing tag of course you won't get a time! If you are the first leg or the last leg member you have to make sure your timing tag is attached to your shoe. The best way to make this fast switch is to use twist ties and attached to your shoe laces. If you have a stop watch and would like to time your leg please do so and email me your team's leg splits with names and I'll add them to the results.

We will have a sweep bike rider with the last Marathon runner that will let you know it is safe to leave your leg station. Please make sure you bring a warm change of clothes so you can change after your leg and of course have your warm clothes on as you wait for your team to reach your leg station. Your team is responsible for arranging to get to the leg stations and to get back to the start/finish line after the course is cleared.

 This is a suggestion and you can set this up however you feel but one team member can drop of team member #2, #3 & #4 with gear in a tupperware container for the corresponding member finishing at that location. After you are done your leg and the sweep comes by you can start driving back from the Mud Bay Parking lot and meet up with your team at the next leg/water station and cheer on the crowd and when the sweep bike comes you will move to the next stop. *Remember it is very very important to have WARM ALL WEATHER outfits. This is an ocean side trail and if the weather is wet & cold we want to be warm!
