Vancouver Historic 5K, 10K & Half Marathon
Vancouver Historic Half Marathon
There isn't a more famous place in Vancouver to run, jog, or walk than Stanley Park's Seawall. The Seawall loops around Stanley Park, running along the park's northern, western and southern coastlines. Fully-paved, the Seawall is an ideal pathway for walkers, joggers and runners of all skill levels, and its route--with views of the city, northern mountains, and Lion's Gate Bridge--is undeniably beautiful. The Half Route circles Stanley Park's Seawall Twice, the 10K and the 5K is an out & back.
Stanley Park is recognized around the globe as one of the great parks of the world! Vancouver's first park and one of the city's main tourist attractions, Stanley Park is an evergreen oasis of 400 hectares (1,000 acres) close to the downtown core. Its natural west coast atmosphere offering a back drop of majestic cedar, hemlock and fir trees embraces visitors and transports them to an environment rich in tranquility. The park abundant with wildlife and its features appeal to the naturalist, the plant lover or anyone who would do nothing more than relax in beautiful surroundings. There is always something happening in the park - check our Events Calendar for listings.
