The sun was shining and so were all 17 students who summoned the courage to don their bibs and head out on the brand new Vancouver Half and Full Marathon courses.
It was incredible to see such determination and commitment from all the kids. Some eased through their races and some struggled – but the main thing was that no matter how beat up they were – they willed themselves to completion. Couldn’t be more proud of all the kids.
Here’s a photo of the half marathoners before the race.

The Vancouver Province wrote a wonderful piece highlighting Streetfront’s Marathon Program. 16 Streetfronter’s are gearing up for this Sunday’s Marathon. 12 kids are running the full (42.2 km) and 4 are running the half (21.2 km). This staggering total is our all-time record for number of participants.
Positive thoughts are most welcome for our runners this weekend. We’ll post the photos at a later date.
