Race Information

The Vancouver Sun Run holds the distinction of being Canada’s largest annual 10k road race, and the second largest timed 10k in the world (we're not kidding, the race typically hosts around 50,000 runners)! The annual Sun Run happens in Vancouver every April and offers runners a unique opportunity to experience running through scenic Vancouver.

Because of its size, the Sun Run has a wave start system. Runners are positioned in various pre-race sections based on their estimated finishing time. This race also features a walkers division for participants who want to do the 10k distance without a focus on time.
