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. This event continues to support local Food Banks as runners may donate or run and fundraise for local Food Banks. 

Annually on Thanksgiving Monday
