The Great Trek has been a staple race in the Vancouver running community for years – formerly 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, plus a Hat-trick option with bonus prizes if you run all three races. 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!
