This is without a doubt the most scenic race within BC’s Lower Mainland. Join us on this one of a kind ‘beach to bridge to beach to bridge to beach’ run.

This incredible point to point 14 km journey starts from Kitsilano Beach, takes you past the Maritime Museum and the Pacific Space Centre along the seawall, then over the Burrard Street Bridge along the English Bay seawall to Second Beach in Stanley Park, and finally, over the Lion’s Gate Bridge and into Ambleside Beach Park to the birthplace of the North Shore Coho salmon.

The 14K distance provides a great challenge for the 10K runner and a fabulous training run for the ½ marathon trainer. Please note the Coho Run is capped at 700 participants, so be sure to grab your spot early.

At the finish line you will enter into the Coho Festival site where you will have the opportunity to participate in this annual festival celebrating the return of the Coho Salmon to the North Shore. Festival activities include environmental displays, visual arts exhibitions, entertainment by local and visiting performers, and of course the famous Salmon Barbeque.

All net proceeds of this event help to support salmon enhancement projects including stream stewardship.

It is the duty of youth to bring its fresh powers to bear on Social progress. Each generation of young people should be to the world like a vast reserve force to a tired army. They should lift the world forward. That is what they are for. Charlotte Perkins Gilman
