Vancouver Half Marathon
The Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon begins at the University of British Columbia (UBC), with the start taking place at 7:30 am most years. The route goes from UBC along Point Grey, past Kitsilano Beach and Vanier Park, over the Burrard Street Bridge, along the English Bay waterfront to Stanley Park not far from Second Beach.
Scotiabank 5K Run
In addition to the half marathon, the Scotiabank event includes a 5 km run, which takes place in and around Stanley Park. The 5K Run starts on Lagoon Drive just up from Second Beach and then goes along Lost Lagoon, down the English Bay section of the Stanley Park seawall, and then as far as a couple of blocks past Denman Street along the waterfront before returning to Stanley Park and the finish line near Second Beach.
