Welcome to Vancouver!
Come run or walk in Vancouver - Canada's "coolest" city! Its Pacific shoreline, mountain views and fabulous nightlife make it a Mecca for people of all ages who love big cities and the great outdoors.
This year, our Hbc Run for Canada Staging Area will be Coal Harbour Park at Canada Place, where our food tents will roll out the red carpet for runners, and live entertainment will thrill onlookers throughout the day. And what a day it will be! The course is more challenging for 2008, but as always it will provide a beautiful snapshot of the city's most spectacular scenery and neighbourhoods.
The events of the Hbc Run for Canada take participants to such landmarks as historic Stanley Park, (you'll be just one of the more than 8,000,000 visitors each year!) with its many world famous gardens and scenic trails. While running or walking on July 1st, don't miss the famous Seawall, English Bay Beach, and Lumberman's Arch - a tribute to the logging industry that was built using felled Redwoods. And keep your eyes peeled on the route for the Japanese War Memorial, as well as the famed Vancouver Aquarium.
