With a total prize amount of $7,000, the Community Cheer Challenge presented by Chevron will award a community group with a $1,000 prize. This group will be chosen based on the largest number of spectators that come out on race day to cheer, show spirit, and find creative ways to showcase what makes their community special. In addition, twelve prizes of $500 will be awarded.

Two $500 prizes will be awarded in each of the following categories:

  • Best Group/Team costume
  • Best Cheer/Singing routine
  • Best Dance routine
  • University Student Club, Group, Team or Faculty/Department cheer
  • Best High School or Middle School cheer group
  • Best Creativity/Decorated Station/House/Business

Community groups are required to meet criteria in order to be eligible for the awards. This includes creatively representing the community, providing a safe environment for spectators, runners, volunteers and officials, a fun and memorable experience for runners, then demonstrating spirit and enthusiasm at the event. Category winners will be chosen by the Vancouver International Marathon Society. Categories are subject to change.

Share your spirit on race day. Join in!
