Beyond the Wall 26k

The Cambie Running Room marathon clinic ventures beyond The Wall for its first foray outside the city of Vancouver. Heading east on 2nd Avenue and Great Northern Way to N Grandview, runners take the Mosaic bike route north to Powell and then Wall Street around to check out the views from New Brighton Park before crossing the line into Burnaby. After spending some time on the Trans Canada Trail in North Burnaby, runners head south on Willingdon to begin the westward return on Burnaby’s Frances/Union bike route which links to the Adanac bike route on the Vancouver side. Turning south on Slocan and west on Central Valley Greenway, runners will then dog-leg at Victoria onto the 10th Avenue bike route for the final push back to Yukon and ultimately the end of the Beyond the Wall loop at Cambie and 7th Avenue.
