The 2021 Oak Bay Half Marathon has gone VIRTUAL. Participants who chose to defer in 2020 can register for 2021 or defer for one more year to 2022, after which deferrals will be expired.

For 2021, we have added a 5k option to the pre-existing Half-Marathon and 10k.

The event typically starts at the beautiful Windsor Park in Oak Bay and winds its way through the heart of Oak Bay’s shopping district. The course then loops out and back along the scenic seaside route of Beach Drive. For the virtual edition, head out in your own community and complete your virtual challenge on your own course or follow along with one of our routes.
