The Best Hike in Downtown Vancouver is Back for its Fifth Year
Every Tuesday in March, thousands of Vancouverites await their chance to take on the best hike in downtown Vancouver, the Harbour Centre Urban Grind.
The Urban Grind is a 633-step stair climbing challenge that takes participants to the top of the Vancouver Lookout. At the top, 'Grinders' are rewarded with a stunning view of Vancouver, DJ entertainment, and a refreshing Steamworks beer. Additionally, every participant received a $5 Food Court voucher to redeem at any of the Food Court vendors downstairs.
On the last night, participants are invited to pick up a chip-timer and set a personal record or compete for the fastest time. Outstandingly, the fastest male and female completed the circuit in under four and a half minutes and won the grand prize of two tickets for the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, BC.
Anyone who used the hashtag #urbangrindyvr on social media had a chance to win some weekly prizes.
