The increasingly popular Canada Running Series heads to British Columbia this June for the 2014 edition of the Vancouver Half Marathon and 5k. 


Known as Canada’s most scenic half marathon, participants experience everything from mountains to beaches before finishing in Vancouver’s famous Stanley Park. 


A very charity focussed event, organisers encourage participants to take part in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge. People are challenged to make their half marathon or 5k more meaningful by first selecting an official event charity and then getting busy fundraising for it. 


As well as gaining personal satisfaction and a karma boost, runners who fundraise for charity are also in line for rewards and spot prizes. 


While in town for the event, visitors to Vancouver should make the most of their time in this wonderful city. 

Whether you fancy a scenic cruise on the harbour, a visit to the renowned Vancouver Art Gallery or a trip to the Dr Sun Yat–Sen Classical Chinese Garden, the city of Vancouver certainly has something for everyone to enjoy. 


The Canada Running Series has built a reputation for delivering well organised, enjoyable running events. This year’s Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon and 5k promises to be a smoothly run, family friendly, feel good event.  Make sure you’re a part of the fun and head to Vancouver this June!




In 2013, the Sunday Mail City Bay Fun Run celebrated its 41st year by smashing numbers with a record 40,512 participants. Runners, walkers and wheelers lined the Adelaide City, Federation Centre at Kurralta Park and SAJC to take part in Australia’s largest Fun Run per head of capita. 


The event raised money for athletics in South Australia as well as almost half a million dollars for more than 140 charities.


This year’s run will be staged on Sunday 21st September 2014.  There are three starts; 12k, 6k and 3k extending from the city along Anzac Highway to Glenelg. The event is also supported by 12 weeks of training workshops, thanks to Health Partners.

Although the event attracts elite runners and walkers from around Australia, the main emphasis is on improving health and fitness in the community by encouraging participation for fun and achievement.  Participants range in age from children in prams to adults aged over 90.


This year organisers will be holding a 3 day expo from September 18-20 where participants can collect their race number, visit sponsor’s site, try on official event merchandise and get all their race day information.
