Race Information

The Rainforest Trail Run features a Kids Run, 5KM (walk/run), and a 10km run through the scenic trails of Central Park in Burnaby on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish People.

The Vancouver Sun Run founders conceived this run to help stimulate physical activity among local indigenous communities. The run’s location offers a unique setting, blending the well-preserved temperate rainforest ecosystem of the 90-hectare park with vistas of Burnaby’s ever-rising cityscape. The start/finish inside Swangard Stadium will also feature an accompanying public event that celebrates the heritage of Canada’s indigenous culture.
