The Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon and 5k, are subject to the road running rules of the IAAF, Athletics Canada and BC Athletics. See rules here (IAAF) — http://www.iaaf.org/about-iaaf/documents/rules-regulations.
Infraction of any rule may result in disqualification. Athletes who have a concern about the application of the rules and want to appeal the results of the event must do so within 30 minutes of the official announcement of official results (IAAF 146).
All rules of competition apply, but we would like to highlight:
- Runners may only take aid from the aid stations on course, that are available to all athletes. Aid from outside of the event, including coaching, communication, and outside pacing is considered a violation (IAAF 144).
- Runners must not leave the race course, unless under the supervision of an official, provided that going off course does not lessen the distance to be covered. The race course is certified as running on the road surface, leaving of the road surface constitutes leaving the race course (IAAF 240).
- Participation in any IAAF event may require doping control to be performed by athletes on the date of the event.
Scotiabank Vancouver 5k Fun Run & Walk
While this is very much a fun run and walk with the emphasis on participation and fundraising, we will award medals to the first three males and females to cross the line.
CRS Awards Policy
Results will be reviewed for one week following the event. During this seven days athletes are able to lodge a formal, written protest to the race director for review. After the week, results will be finalized and prizing cheques issued. Prize cheques will no longer be distributed on event day; letters of congratulations will be issued day of race.
Appeals of Race Results
Full results for each race will be posted on our website shortly after the last runner crosses the Finish line. Participants will have until 12 noon local time on the Monday following each race to appeal any result. This must be done in writing to .
Final, official results will then be posted by 5pm local time on the Wednesday following [2 days later]. At that time, all results will be Official and FINAL.
Appeals of Series Standings
Updated Canada Running Series points Standings will then be posted on the Thursday following the race and announcement of Final Results, by noon. Individuals will then have 7 days to appeal any Points Standings, in writing, to , after which time Points Standings will become Official and FINAL.
Important Note About Results
The Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon is certified by BC Athletics, Athletics Canada and Association of International Marathons and Distance Races. The course has been measured by two certified measurers, using Jones counters.
2013 SVHM Measurement Certificate (1.85 MB).
The course is measured along the shortest possible distance between the start line and the finish line. This entails taking the shortest possible line on all curves, roads and tangents. It is difficult for any runner, including the leader, to meet every tangent in the course.
A GPS device measures distance wherever you go during the race. If you go to the side of the road to a water station, the GPS records this extra distance. If you zig-zag around other runners in the first few kilometres, the GPS measures the extra distance. Wherever you do not run the short line tangent in the road, the additional distance you cover is measured by the GPS. Everytime a GPS takes a reading of your placement, it is only accurate to a 7m distance in Canada. Imagine a 14m diameter circle around you at Point A. When you reach Point B and it reads you again, a difference of 14m can occur. If a GPS takes a measure every 100m, that is a 140m difference per kilometre. You would also need to start/stop your GPS exactly on the start and finish lines.
A GPS device, worn in a race, will always record a distance different than an accurately measured course.
Gun Time is the Official Time
Overall awards are based on GUN TIME — the time from the start of the race (gun) to when you cross the finish line as per IAAF, Athletics Canada, BC Athletics, USATF, AIMS and International Awards standards.
Excerpt from the IAAF Road Race Handbook — pg 196 Rule 240
Note: For road races and road walking events, the official time will be the time elapsed between the start gun and the athlete reaching the finish line. However, if an athlete crosses the start line after the start gun, his time elapsed between the start and finish line can be made known to the athlete but will not be considered as official time. The order in which athletes reach the finish line will be considered as the official finish position. 196 RULE 240
Because we have start corrals, age category awards are based on Chip Time (from when you start to when you finish), but Overall awards are based on Gun Time (from the start of all runners, to when you finish) as per IAAF rules.

Masters Age category for the Canada Running Series is defined as an athlete who is 40+ years on or before the date of the event.
