    Is there a typo regarding the first-train departure from King George? Should it be 05:38?

    I’m running the half marathon for the third year in a row, and it’s a race I look forward to each year!

    Yes there was a typo — thanks for the catch! Fixed now.

    Best of luck in the half marathon!

    It still says 5:38am … what time is the first train leaving Surrey ??????

  • By Jhenifer Pabillano, April 28, 2010 @ 1:09 pm

    Oh, sorry Garth. It originally said 6:38 a.m. up there but the typo has been corrected. 5:38 a.m. is the correct time for the first Surrey morning SkyTrain departure.
