From Beach to Bridge to Beach to Bridge to Beach
Three stretches of seawall, 2 bridges, 3 beaches, and Vancouver's idealic waterfront await you on the Coho Run.
From Vancouver's Kitsilano Beach to Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver, you will pass many an iconic landmark as you wind your way along the seawall and over the world famous Lions Gate Bridge.
The 14k Run starts at Kitsilano Beach, taking you along the Kits seawall, past the Maritime Museum and the Pacific Space Centre around to the historic Burrard Street Bridge. The gentle slope up to the bridge deck is the first of three hills on an otherwise relatively flat course. After crossing the bridge, the run takes you down to the English Bay seawall and into Stanley Park, reaching the halfway point at Second Beach. From Third Beach the route encounters a short but tough ascent up the Merilees Trail to Prospect Point and then a gentle slope up
again to Lions Gate Bridge. From the Center of the bridge, you will be greeted with a breathtaking view of the North Shore Mountains as you head downhill to cross the mouth of the Capilano River and finally, into Ambleside Park and the Coho Festival where you will find the finish line.
2 Aid stations are located on the course. The first one at approx 5km located at the Innukshuk between Sunset Beach and English Bay Beach. The second one is at approx 10km at Prospect Point in Stanley Park.
Both Aid stations will have volunteers with water as well as a first aid attendant.
