Half Marathon Course
The race starts and finishes at the Fort Langley National Historic Site located in Fort Langley. The course does a short loop (1K) before heading south on Bay Street to Glover Road for 1 km. You will then turn left onto Rawlison Crescent and follow this road until it meets River Road (3.5 km). The route will go East on River road for 700 meters before turning onto Armstrong. The hill on Armstrong will be the most challenging part of the route. At 80th Ave you will proceed to Telegraph Trail and run on this historic road for 1.8 km until you reach 72 Ave. Here you will head west for 1.6 km to 240th Street. You will go north for 2.4 km to Rawlison Crescent where now you will proceed back to the finish via Glover Road and Bay Street. It should be noted this course is challenging but very scenic. The main hill occurs at 8k on Armstrong road and rewards you with majestic views of Mt Baker as you summit. The last 11k of the route is slightly rolling, downhill and flat and will reward those who pace themselves with a fast time.
