The non-profit Vancouver International Marathon Society now annually organizes the Granville Island Turkey Trot. Our mission is to deliver a running event that promotes Vancouver’s active lifestyle, engaging participants and community partners to create a positive and memorable experiences.
To acknowledge the special role communities play in bringing race day to life, we’ve introduced a new Community Challenge program – the goal of which is to create a movement that will ignite support and excitement for sport. Our objective is to create community spirit and support community groups.
Community Challenge Awards
The Community Challenge presented by Chevron will recognize and reward communities that support the event in a few ways.
- $500 will be awarded to the team with the largest numbers of runners
- $250 will be awarded to the Best Team Costume – runners or spectators – or the “most impactful” spectator group
Team Captains of the 10 largest teams will also have their race registration reimbursed plus receive exclusive RUNVAN® Swag!
