Bowen Island’s homegrown trail race with a lot of heart and unbelievable scenery 


Handloggers Half Marathon and Relay is a challenging 21km trail run looping counter clockwise around Mt. Gardner on Bowen Island, BC. Just a 20 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver, BC, Bowen Island is almost unreasonably beautiful.


Here you’ll find incredible views, amazing trails through breathtaking unspoilt forest, and hospitality like none other. Come join us for a fun time on the trails and make some new friends while you’re here! We can’t wait to share our island home with you!
