Dimitri’s Tugboat is a quick cruise out to Kits Point named in honour of Vancouver’s fastest naval architect — and the fastest Greek at the 2017 Boston Marathon — Dimitri Mylonas. The route follows the road section of Kits Point featured in both the Vancouver Marathon and the Scotiabank Half Marathon, so it’s a great little training run for either of those races.
