Great TrekA Jaunt Through Musqueam Territory
The Last Great Run of the Year
Previously the Fall Classic, the Great Trek has been a staple race in the Vancouver running community for years. In partnership with the University of British Columbia, the Great Trek pays homage the Great Trek of 1922, where students marched to their current campus. This popular Vancouver event features races for everyone with a Half Marathon, 10KM and 5KM route. Join the run community and end your running season on a high note – clock a personal best time for the year or come just for the fun! In 2020, the event is initially being offered as a Virtual Race.

Out at UBC, the Fall Classic features gorgeous routes under stunning fall foliage and a tour through the beautiful university campus. All three distances share a Start and Finish Line near the AMS Student Nest and the Half Marathon and 10KM routes run out towards the UBC Endowment Lands. For the Virtual Race, you’re asked to please find your own pedestrian friendly route.
