Race Route Map


Parking is extremely limited so we suggest taking transit, biking, or carpooling as an alternative.  A complimentary bike check will also be available on race day so you can secure your bike safely with our staff.

If you do require parking, free parking is available at BC Children's Hospital on Sunday, June 3. To access this free parking, please enter and exit from the Oak Street Entrance.  Limited parking is available in the underground lot, or head further east (towards Heather Street) for additional parking. Access the RBC Race for the Kids site via 29th Ave.

Medical Services

Medical services are headquartered at the event site near the washrooms and also roaming on the race route.

Lost & Found

On the post-run festival site: all lost and separated people can check-in at the Lost & Found tent located by the main stage. The stage manager will make the necessary announcements and stay with the lost party until they are picked up.

On the route: look for 'Meeting Place' signs or one of the water stations on the course, or report to any volunteer in YELLOW to help notify our Course Manager.

Day of Registrations & Donations

Last minute registrations & donations will be accepted between 7:30 - 8:30 a.m. at the new Registrations and Donations tent.

T-shirt Pickup 

Avoid event day lineups. Pick up your t-shirt and race bib before race day.
