Community Challenge Presented by Chevron

The non-profit Vancouver International Marathon Society now annually organizes the Granville Island Turkey Trot. Our mission is to deliver running events that promote Vancouver’s active lifestyle, engaging participants and community partners to create 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 grassroots movement that will ignite support and excitement for sport. Our objective is to create community spirit and support community groups.
