VUM is a strong advocate for the health and wellness of children. We know that good health is achieved by staying active, but we also believe in making it FUN! The Vancouver USA Kids races are the perfect example. We encourage not only exercise, but a festive atmosphere for all! So parents, let your kids wear their favorite red, white, and blue outfit for this great day and join them in a fun celebration of physical health!

Hey Kids! Here’s the deal: Have you watched Mom or Dad run a Marathon? Or maybe you saw one on TV? And you thought, “Hey! I want to do that, and I want a medal too!” Well here’s your chance to do a marathon and cross that finish line!

Here’s how it works: Leading up to race day you will log in 25 miles, it can be a ½ mile at a time or less/more, depending on how you want to do it. You will log your miles on a special form and bring it to the VUM Active Expo (see times below) in Esther Short park to receive your race bib. Then on race day, you will lace your shoes up for a 1.2 mile run to complete your marathon! Just like all marathoners, you will get your finisher’s medal when you cross the finish line! This race is a great way to get even the youngest ones in the family involved in the Vancouver Marathon weekend!

  • Commemorative T-Shirt
