New UrbaCity Venue at the VCC!

UrbaCity has a new home for race day.

On September 24, join us in the heart of downtown Victoria at the Victoria Conference Centre (VCC) in the Upper and Lower Pavilions! This central location is neighboured by the iconic Empress Hotel, bustling Douglas Street, the Royal BC Museum, and is just a stone’s throw from the inner harbour.

The bright and open VCC Pavilions in our downtown core promise to host one of the most eye-catching UrbaCity race days ever – so don’t forget to wave at a tourist.

The VCC Pavilions will act as our main base on race day:

  • In the morning, racers will come to the VCC to register and receive their bags, stay for the opening ceremonies, and then head out on the course.
  • In the afternoon, racers will return to the VCC finish line, take part in post-race activities, and then celebrate with closing ceremonies and awards.

Thanks go to Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre for being our race home for the first six years of UrbaCity. Our 2017 venue will definitely shake things up a little, provide some different race-day strategy – and create a whole lot of fun!

Welcome to the UrbaCity Challenge family, VCC!

Half of the UrbaCity home: the Lower Victoria Conference Centre Pavilion. Together with the Upper Pavilion, it makes up the UrbaCity 2017 venue.
