Our popular half marathon is sure to sell out this year! With course highlights that include Historic Ft. Vancouver and the mighty Columbia River, our half marathon course is truly a gem. The event weekend includes a 2-day outdoor Active Expo, along with the Vancouver Saturday Market, the 3rd annual Summer Brewfest, and all VUM ceremonies and festivities commencing in Esther Short Park. Don't miss this outrageous race along the river with all the amenities: a commemorative tech-shirt, finisher medal, great food, beverages, a fabulous view, and so much more!


Walkers and Runners are both welcome! You will have 5 hours to complete the course. During this time, you'll have full support from our medical team, volunteers, flaggers and police officers. After 5 hours, you'll be instructed to follow the normal rules of the road as the streets will be open to the public.
