10K to Half Marathon Program

The 10K to Half Marathon Program will be announced shortly.

 

SportMedBC in Partnership with Canadian Running Series & Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon is introducting a 9-Week 10K to Half Marathon Program starting the week of April 25th!

SportMedBC’s 10K to Half Marathon Program will help InTraining graduates to safely complete the 21K distance. Created by Lynn Kanuka, resident Olympian, and with the support of our experienced team of run leaders, SportMedBC is providing a gradual training program that starts right after the Sun Run. This 9-week training program will allow for a seamless transition to walk/run the 21km distance.

Our 10K to Half Marathon training clinics offer two intensity levels:

Run Easy is suitable for those runners who have completed SportMedBC’s Run10K training and/or are comfortable with a 40mins run/walk with “10 and 1s” intervals (10mins running alternated with 1min walking) three times per week, and ideally have completed at least one 10K event.

Run Stronger is suitable for runners who have completed SportMedBC’s Run10KStronger program, or are comfortably running 40mins three times per week, and ideally have completed at least one 10K event.

Participants should only consider these clinics if they have been walk/running safely and comfortably, with no injury problems for 3 months leading up to the clinic start date.

Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon Race- In Person June 26, 2022

Established in 1998, the Vancouver Half Marathon on the West Coast of Canada now consistently hosts over 6000 runners, making it one of the largest half marathons in the area.

The race takes runners on a scenic point-to-point course from UBC to Stanley Park. With a net drop of almost 300ft and a consistently competitive elite field, this event has produced the fastest half-marathon times ever run in BC. Combine this with numerous bands, water stations, great medals, a finish line party, and you’re set for your best half-marathon yet!

Not up for a half-marathon? The event also hosts a family-friendly 5k route which takes runners along the roads & paths of Stanley Park to a finish line by picturesque Second Beach.
