Kits Pool is a Vancouver landmark which opened next to Kits Beach in 1931. The spacious, outdoor, saltwater pool is a favourite with Vancouver swimmers in large part because its swimming lanes are 137 metres, or 450 feet long, making it Canada’s longest pool. Unfortunately for local swimmers, Kits Pool is only open for swimming from June to September, but we can run around it any time we want.
The original Kits Pool Loop from the Cambie Running Room is 11.5k, but if you are looking for a shorter route there, try Kits and Dogs, a 10-kilometre version which accesses False Creek via Charleson Park. Either way you choose to get there, grab your Speedo and come along for the ride.
