Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5k
Due to COVID-19, the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon & 5k that would have been held in late June 2020 will now be held as a virtual event. This means anyone participating in the event can complete their distance anytime between June 29 and September 18, 2020.
What are your options?
- Sign up for the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon & 5k and participate on behalf of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. There is a $35 registration fee with options to participate in a 5k, 10k or half-marathon distances.
- As an alternative, you could sign up for the Society’s own initiative, Missed My Marathon. It’s free to participate and you can decide the length of your run or what your challenge looks like. You can use it as your exercise break for the day, complete the race from the comfort of your own home or even break your run into smaller chunks and complete parts of it on different weekends.
If you had already registered for the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon & 5k, you should have received an email from Canada Running Series with options regarding your registration. Please ensure you confirm your selection with Canada Running Series.
If you do run outside, please adhere to the current physical distancing recommendations.
Although we cannot run together in person as we usually would, we will continue to cheer you on (virtually!) every step of the way. You can share your progress and stay connected with your fellow runners by tagging us @alzheimerbc on social media and using the Society’s hashtag #MissedMyMarathon (or through the Canada Running Series hashtag #ScotiaHalf), and we will keep in touch with helpful tips and fundraising ideas for your virtual race.
Whether you take part in the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon & 5k or Missed My Marathon, you’ll be raising vital funds for the estimated 70,000 British Columbians living with dementia.
