This year the Vancouver Sun Run will take place on May 9th, 2010. If your children would like to take part, the 2.5 K Shaw Mini Sun Run affords them an opportunity to run or walk a shorter course. Each entrant will receive a souvenir Sun Run T-shirt or a paint-your-own T-shirt kit for children. If your family registers before April 1st the cost is $17. To register go to http://www.sunrun.com. The regular rate for the full Sun Run will be $40 until March 31st. People with strollers and people in wheel chairs can also take part. It is truly an inclusive event.
If you and your family do not plan to run the Sun Run you can also volunteer. Volunteers are needed as marshalls, helpers at watering stations and assistance in other ways. Each volunteer works a minimum six hour shift either before the race or on the day. All volunteers receive a Sun Run volunteer crew t-shirt.
The Vancouver Sun Run is one of the most exciting community events that takes place in Vancouver. If you are unsure about whether you and your family should take part, head down to the race this year and have a look to see if you want to take part next year as a runner, walker or volunteer.
