About This Activity

Join us for our second annual 5k and Family Fun Run benefitting You Can STOP Domestic Abuse.

This race is FREE for kids age 12 and under (T-shirt not included). A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Children's Justice Center, providing a safe, child-friendly place for young victims of abuse and their non-offending family members. We are proud to support them.

The Course

This beautiful 3.1 mile course will lead runners and walkers from Esther Short Park in the heart of downtown Vancouver down the Waterfront Renaissance Trail alongside the mighty Columbia River. Participants will find an aid station with water at the turn-around point just past Beaches Restaurant, at the Wendy Rose statue. Loop back the way you came to finish in the park for a grand celebration.
