Community Challenge

The non-profit Vancouver International Marathon Society now annually organizes the Fall Classic. Our mission is to deliver a running event that promotes Vancouver’s active lifestyle, engaging participants and community partners to create positive and memorable experiences.

To acknowledge the special role communities play in bringing race day to life, we’ve introduced a new Community Challenge program – the goal of which is to create a movement that will ignite support and excitement for sport. Our objective is to create community spirit and support community groups.


Community Challenge Awards
The Community Challenge presented recognizes and rewards communities that support the event. Cash prizes are up for grabs!

Categories include:

  • Best Cheer Team
  • Largest Running Team
  • Best Volunteer Team

All details are subject to change.


Cheer on your friends and family! Bring your best cheer signs and shake your hips! You don’t have to be a runner to enjoy in the race day excitement.
