Course Details

We believe this is one of the prettiest courses in the Northwest! We’ve designed the Marathon & Half Marathon course to take you through some of the most scenic areas of Vancouver and it really highlights our wonderful community including historic Officer’s Row, Fort Vancouver, Army Barracks, Pearson Airport, the Columbian Riverfront, Marine Park, Wintler Park and of course, the Oldest Apple Tree in the Northwest. The course is mostly flat with a couple short hills.

Check out some of the course highlights:

The Start/Finish line will be on Officers Row in front of the Historical Grant House with post-race festivities within and around Fort Vancouver National Historic Site

PARKING: We have arranged for athletes and spectators to park at Hudson's Bay High-school and Clark College Red Lots #1 and #2. You can also park in Downtown Vancouver on the streets for free on weekends. Any of the options offered in Pre-race instructions will give you a short walk to the Start/Finish line on race day - consider it your warmup. Best and closest options are Hudson's Bay High-school and Downtown. Just remember to park North of Officer's Row to minimize delays.

Check out this article below listing the 20 coolest things about Vancouver. During our APPLETREE Marathon, Half & 5K, you’ll be passing by or very close to most of the areas on this list! Our course is truly a ‘Run though History’ and you’ll enjoy so much beauty!

Off-Road Trail Running: There is a 1/4 mile section on the course for the 5K, Half and Marathon distances that will take you on a gravel and then grassy path with uneven terrain. Be careful and enjoy the softer impact as you run on the backside of Historical Fort Vancouver.
