The Vancouver running community is incredibly active, especially the people of West Vancouver – they take running very seriously. On Sunday, March 3, 2013, both professional and recreational runners are invited to participate in the annual West Van Run 5k and 10km race.
Registration is now open for the race, which starts and finishes at Ambleside Park in West Vancouver. Race starts at 8:30am.
Currently, kids under 15 years and seniors over 60 years can register for $10, and teams of five or more people for $20 per team member.
Race packages pick-up is Saturday, March 2 from 11am-4pm at the North Vancouver Running Room at 2601 Westview Drive North.
This is more than just a race. West Van Run is committed to supporting the community, with 50% of net proceeds being donated to the Special Olympics North Shore, a not-for-profit organization helping athletes with special needs to stay active.
