THE RUN Map

Olympic = 10km          |          Sprint= 5km          |          Tri it Triathlon/Draft Legal wave = 2.5km
From transition, you will follow the paved trail under Beach Ave and around Lost Lagoon. From here you will go over the pedestrian footbridge into central Stanley Park and the Hummingbird Trail. This will bring you out onto the North seawall to follow it to the west until the turnaround. Follow the same route back until you are directed to turn right and return along the north side of Lost Lagoon. You will be returning to the finish/lap at the same point where you dismount your bike.

The Tri it event will consist of a 2.5km loop around Lost Lagoon. View the map here.

Aid stations will be available every 2.5km. Volunteers/marshalls will man key intersections, but this course will not be closed to pedestrian traffic. Please be courteous and remain alert for walkers, rollerbladers, and cyclists. Volunteers will do their best to inform pedestrians but THIS COURSE IS NOT CLOSED. We do not want to upset anyone as we can easily lose the opportunity to hold the event here.
