Starting of the 2011 Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon.

We could not have asked for better weather for the 13th running of the Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon and with a great elite field up front on the both the men’s and women’s sides provided a great race. Always good for a quote, 3rd place overall, elite runner Rob Watson on chasing Kip Kangogo over Burrard Bridge, “that bridge sucked. I wanted to jump off”. Once you beat the bridge, it’s an easy 1.5km into the finish line.

Third win in a row for Kip Kangogo from Lethbridge AB.
