This annual ten-kilometer race is the second largest in North America. Live bands encourage runners, and there are water stations and rest stops throughout the route. The race winds by sandy beaches, the towering trees of Stanley Park and the glassy skyscrapers of Downtown. A mini 2K race and competitive wheelchair race enables everyone to participate in the fun of the event. Reservations and prepayment is required for the Vancouver Sun Run.
