Banzai Run 32k

The Banzai Run is a scenic 32k that celebrates Vancouver's running splendour. Vancouver Ichiban, ya!!

I originally dubbed the Banzai Run the Bonsai Run because I thought Greg’s route resembled a small tree in an oversized pot, but the celebratory Japanese term, Banzai, seemed far more appropriate for a run like this. With a gentle climb from the Cambie Running Room up through Shaughnessy to the full tour of the Stanley Park Seawall and back, the Banzai Run promises great Vancouver running with some great views of the city and beyond.

Not ready for the Big Banzai? We’ve got you covered with 16k and 19k versions as well. Banzai!
