The Vancouver Half Marathon & 5K is a great way to get active while doing something meaningful for the community.

The Vancouver Half Marathon & 5K returns on Sunday, June 23, 2024 and participants can fundraise in support of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Funds raised will help us achieve our vision of a world where people living with dementia, their caregivers and families are acknowledged, welcomed and included – a truly dementia-friendly province.

This year, you once again have the option to participate in-person, virtually or both! The Vancouver Half Marathon & 5K is a fun way to kick off the summer season while making a difference for people affected by dementia.

Join other participants on the scenic route from UBC along Marine Drive, as you take in the shoreline views from Spanish Banks and reach the finish line at the Museum of Vancouver. This family-friendly event will bring together over 5,000 runners and walkers of all levels with the option to choose from 21K, 5K or Kids Run (1K).

The virtual component of the event runs from June 1-30, 2024. Participate outdoors, on a track or treadmill from a remote location at any time until Sunday, June 30, 2024. Complete the full distance in one go or break it into smaller increments over several days!

Be a part of our team and work towards a common fundraising goal in support of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Gather your family and friends or enjoy a friendly virtual competition, all while raising funds for an important cause! 

Register today to receive a souvenir t-shirt, finisher’s medal and so much more.

The funds you raise will help provide vital programs and services for the estimated 85,000 British Columbians living with dementia while enabling research into the causes and cures of dementia.
