A Jaunt Through Musqueam Territory
The Great Trek presented by BlueShore Financial has been a staple race in the Vancouver running community for years – formerly known as the Fall Classic. In partnership with the University of British Columbia, the Great Trek pays homage the Great Trek of 1922, where students marched to their current campus. This popular Vancouver event features races for everyone with a Half Marathon, 10KM and 5KM route. Join the run community and end your running season on a high note – clock a personal best time for the year or come just for the fun! The 5KM is scheduled to start at 12pm Noon.
Next in-person event: Saturday, October 28, 2023
