The Trafalgar Loop begins with a leisurely and scenic stroll along the False Creek Seawall out past Kits Beach and finishes with a flurry of gamesmanship as runners hammer through numerous Strava segments en route to victory back at Cambie and 7th. The route has all the makings of a tactical battle that would have put a smile on the face of Admiral Horatio Nelson.

Take heed for this Battle of Trafalgar can be won or lost at Oak Street and combatants must be particularly careful to watch for the crossfire of French musket balls so as not to meet Admiral Nelson’s fate — translation: there’s a crosswalk but no stop light at Oak & 7th, motorists have the right-of-way and it’s a total pain in the ass for them to stop regardless of whether they’re driving uphill or down!
