Annual Thanksgiving Tradition

Run & Give

The Granville Island Turkey Trot is a hallmark event for Granville Island and the Vancouver run community. The annual event brings together runners in a celebration of Thanksgiving, demonstrating our community of running, our gratitude for the sport, and our commitment to supporting others. Partial proceeds are donated to local Food Banks. The Virtual Race will take place October 1-15, and we hope restrictions are lifted so we may host an in person race over this Thanksgiving Weekend per tradition. The 10KM race is traditionally held on Thanksgiving Monday.
