Get Ready for the 2016 Vancouver USA Marathon!

updated Feb 3, 2016

We are the ONLY Marathon with a Summer Brewfest and our event is the Hidden Gem of the NW

Vancouver USA Marathon is all about community, running, walking & enjoying life! Our team is committed to organizing a quality event at a quality price! The course highlights the best that the Vancouver community has to offer, including historic sites, a National Park and the mighty Columbia River – it is truly a gem. The event weekend includes a 3 day VUM “Active” Expo held in the center of it all, Esther Short Park. All festivities will commence in this beautiful one acre park located in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Don't miss this awesome race with so many amenities and value for an unbelievable price. Each participant will receive a commemorative tech-shirt, handcrafted finisher medal, great food, beverages, goodies, fabulous course views and an entry into the 3 Day Summer Brewfest! Bart Yasso has made it his tradition to be our emcee for 5 years, and we know it will be your Half Marathon or Marathon tradition too!

Walkers and Runners are both welcome! The course will be open until 2pm giving you 7 hours to complete the race. During this time, you'll have full support from our medical team, volunteers, flaggers and police officers. After 7 hours, you'll be instructed to follow the normal rules of the road as the streets will be open to the public.
