The Vancouver USA Marathon is the perfect race to not only enjoy a 26.2 mile USATF certified and Boston Marathon qualifier course, but also enjoy the scenery of our beautiful city of Vancouver. The scenic route begins at Esther Short Park in the heart of downtown Vancouver, winds through the streets of the city, continues through our historic region of Ft. Vancouver National Park, and a short distance will provide you with nearly 4 miles of views of our stunning Columbia River waterfront trails. A trip back through downtown will lead you on a scenic run to your second and final out and back near Vancouver Lake and Frenchman’s Bar. A welcoming crowd will be waiting for you at the start/finish line on 6th and Columbia right where you started!

Walkers and Runners are both welcome! The course will be open until 2pm giving you 7.5 hours to complete the race. During this time, you will have full support from our medical team, volunteers, flaggers and police officers. After 7.5 hours, you'll be instructed to follow the normal rules of the road as the streets will be open to the public.
