Vancouver Sun Run

History of The Vancouver Sun Run

The Vancouver Sun Run has been Canada's largest 10K road race since its inception in 1985.

Founded by former Canadian Olympians Dr. Doug and Diane Clement along with Dr. Jack Taunton, the run's purpose was to promote the benefits of running to improve health and fitness as well as support elite amateur athletics.

The first run attracted 3,200 participants.

Through the years the run captured the imagination and hearts of individuals wanting to improve their health and wellbeing. The event morphed into the phenomenon it is today with thousands upon thousands descending upon the streets of Vancouver each year in celebration of Sun Run Sunday!

The run is supported by its loyal host committee and an army of over 3,000 volunteers.

The Vancouver Sun Run is still Canada's largest 10K road race and is now the 2nd largest timed 10K in the world.

An incredible 48,904 registrants signed up for the 2012 Vancouver Sun Run event with participants taking in the beautiful Vancouver scenery under sunny skies.

The Vancouver Sun Run has truly become one of Vancouver's traditional rites of spring and is preparing for its 29th year running.
