Squamish is one of the premiere outdoor destinations in North America and was officially named a top trail running town by Trail Runner magazine. The community is officially known as “The Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada” and the descriptor could not be more accurate.

Squamish BC

Located just 45 minutes north of Vancouver, along one of the most scenic and famous roads in Canada, The Sea To Sky Highway, you’ll enjoy the drive nearly as much as the run. Outside of typical heavy traffic hours it’s only a 3-hour commute from Seattle, which can also make for a perfect launching point for eastern US runners.

If you need transportation from Vancouver to Squamish, Squamish Connector has affordable shuttles four times a day from Waterfront Station, which is a hub in downtown Vancouver for SkyTrains from YVR and elsewhere. Runners and volunteers can save 15% by using code “squamish50” when booking.
