Ultimate Guide to Great Trek: Participant Edition


  • DATE: October 28, Friday
  • TIME: 11am – 2pm
  • WHERE: The route will go from outside Sauder all the way up Main Mall to Stadium turnaround, and back down Main Mall where it will finish beside the bookstore – you can’t miss the big finish arch!
  • WHAT: You can take part in one of three ways: either as an individual on a 8km run; as part of a four person relay; or as a walker of the 3.5km route


What to Bring

  • UBC Student ID
  • Clothes and shoes to walk and run in
  • A change of clothes and rain gear depending on the weather


Upon arrival, head on over to the main area on Main Mall. Check in at the registration tent where you’ll be asked for your UBC Student ID, given a waiver to fill out and a race number. You’ll also be able to store your stuff at our free bag check beside the registration tent.


Once you’re done, be sure to stick around for food (did somebody say pancakes?) and awards, and fun and music!
