Race Information

The Kajaks Track & Field Club hosts the annual Steveston Icebreaker 8K and New Balance 1K Kids run. The Icebreaker 8K is Richmond's only road race of the year, the first race in the Lifestages Lower Mainland Road Runners Series, and the second race of the BC Athletics BC Super Series, but it is open to all running levels.

Being a community-organized event, runners can expect a family-friendly environment and the opportunity to run along sections of the street that are rarely closed off to traffic. This race offers a flat and fast certified course through scenic and historic Steveston, a post-race expo with awards, and a kids' zone inside the community centre. It's a different feel than some of the big Vancouver races and it is also a fundraiser for KidSport. Start your year off with a personal best and the best views in the city! The Icebreaker and Kidsrun have both sold out the last two years so be sure to register early.

Run Pick of the Month - WWF Climb for Nature

 Unique event happening inside BC Place on May 26, 2024.

The WWF Climb for Nature is your chance to get into the fight against wildlife loss and climate change by fundraising and climbing up and down the stairs of each section in the lower bowl of the iconic BC Place stadium.

This is the first time an event like this has ever happened inside BC Place. You can choose a single bowl climb (approx. 3,000 steps) or double bowl climb (approx. 6,000 steps).

All funds raised at the event will go towards protecting and restoring the crucial habitats of southern resident killer whales, salmon, Vancouver Island marmots and other at-risk wildlife in BC and throughout Canada.

The next 1000 registrations will be FREE thanks to a generous donation by an anonymous sponsor. Register now using the promo code FREE1000.
