Urban Grind 2019 at Harbour Centre

Harbour Centre and the Vancouver Lookout invite you to get in shape for spring/summer hiking season by climbing the Urban Grind – the stairs to the iconic Vancouver Lookout.

This is the urban cousin of the popular Grouse Grind (closed during winter and into early spring). Here’s a way to get your heart pumping indoors with a gorgeous 360º aerial view of Vancouver at the top.

Each $5 entry ticket includes a refreshing beer, a $5 Harbour Centre Food Court voucher and live DJ entertainment. You’re invited to complete the route as many times as desired between 4:30 and 6:30 pm.

This year, BC’s very own elite Tower Runner, Shaun Stephens-Whale, will be on site to share his stair climbing tips. Shaun’s most recent accolades include winning the 2017 Rainier Tower Fight for Air Climb in Seattle, placing third in the Climb to Abu Dhabi Vertical Marathon and third in the Empire State Building Run-Up.
