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.

We love working with Harbour Centre and the Vancouver Lookout on this annual event. It’s one you don’t want to miss!
