Race Details


We are excited to offer three locations again this year, so you can take part wherever you live in BC.

Choose from a 2km or 5km family fun run. The start line is located at Midlothian Street and Clancy Loranger Way with a post-race festival taking place right after the run in Riley Park. The race day item pick-up and teams' area are located in the gravel parking lot behind Nat Bailey Stadium. Parking is extremely limited, so we suggest transit, biking or carpooling as an alternative.

In your community
Run, walk or participate wherever you live in BC by organizing your own event.

Both the Vancouver and Victoria races start at 9 am sharp, but we recommend you arrive early and plan ahead for congestion around the event site. Also to note that our warm-up starts at 8:40 am.


Join us in working to protect and conserve our communities as we enjoy race festivities.  

RBC Race for the Kids is committed to being environmentally responsible and is dedicated to reducing the carbon footprint across our festival sites. Sustainability is important to our team and we will continue to innovate on sustainability measures in order to keep our communities as pristine as possible. 

Here are a few ways we’re tackling sustainability: 

Reusable T-shirts
Keeping the same design as 2023 allows participants to reuse their t-shirts for our 2024 RBC Race for the Kids. Our T-shirts are made of sustainably and fairly grown USA cotton. Gildan's manufacturing process utilizes 45% renewable energy. Gildan’s Community Investment Program supports education, the environment, humanitarian aid and active living in the communities we do business in.

Race Medals
Our 2024 race medals are made from wheat straw plastic with a recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic lanyard. Wheat straw plastic is a biodegradable environmentally friendly alternative to plastic, BPA free, and has FDA approval. PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is plastic that is used to make packaging, such as plastic bottles and food containers. Converting postconsumer PET into a valuable resource helps the environment because rPET has a lower carbon footprint than virgin PET.

Our Vancouver event is easily accessible by bus or Canada Line. We offer a free bike and gear valet onsite at our events – don’t drive, bike and be green! 

Waste Diversion
RBC Race for the Kids 2023 successfully diverted a total of 382kg of recycled materials, which is equivalent to 64.3 bags of recyclable materials saved from the landfill. Achieving a diversion rate of 81%. Industry standard for events to be considered “zero waste” is a minimum 90% diversion rate and we will continue our efforts to make this event as sustainable as possible.

Emissions Savings
By diverting 382 kg of materials from the landfill we prevented co2 emissions equivalent to 1.1 tonnes. This emissions reduction is equivalent to:
