The Summerfast 10K course is a scenic, flat, fast run along the Stanley Park Seawall
The start is located adjacent to Ceperley Playground, east of Stanley Park Drive, on the bike path. The racecourse swings around the south side of Lost Lagoon and passes beneath West Georgia Street before doing a short loop in Coal Harbour. From there runners head out onto the Seawall. The racecourse then follows along the Seawall in a counter-clockwise direction. The finish line is back at Ceperley Field, close to the start.
Due to several tight corners early in the race and the shared-use nature of the course, the Summerfast 10K is not an appropriate event for competitive wheelchair athletes. Participation by recreational para-athletes will be considered on a case-by-case basis in order to ensure the safety of the athlete, other runners, and pedestrians. Please contact the race director: racedirector[at]vfac.ca
We encourage parents who are considering registering their children in Summerfast to consult Athletics Canada’s guidelines on children and youth in road races, so that they are aware of the potential risks. The guidelines are available here.
Runners with Strollers
Runners with strollers can participate in this race but will be required to start at the back of the start line.
