Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5k

In light of the current situation surrounding COVID-19, the run organizers have made the difficult decision to cancel the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon & 5k on June 28, 2020.

However, if you would still like to walk or run your 5k or half marathon as a virtual challenge in support of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. during these unprecedented times, we invite you to take part in our own initiative, Missed My Marathon.

Missed My Marathon allows you to continue to fundraise online and complete your run or walk as a safe, solo challenge in your own neighbourhood. You can use it as your exercise break for June 28, or if you fancy extending your challenge, break your run into smaller chunks and complete parts of it throughout June and July. You could even complete your challenge from the comfort of your living room, just like the man who ran a marathon on his balcony!

If you do run outside, please adhere to the current physical distancing recommendations.

When and how you take part is up to you, but however you do it, you’ll be raising vital funds for the estimated 70,000 British Columbians living with dementia.

Simply take a look at the registration steps and fill in a registration form here to create your Missed My Marathon online fundraising page. Then, share the link with your family and friends to get those donations rolling in. We encourage you to share your progress, training, walks and runs on social media – and remember to tag us with @alzheimerbc and #MissedMyMarathon.

Thank you for your continued support! For more information about Missed My Marathon contact Kerry at 604-742-4936 or [email protected].
