Vancouver Running Festival October 21/22

Postby Jwolf » Wed Apr 12, 2017 5:12 pm

This is great news! When Competitor (Rock n Roll) pulled out of Vancouver, Lions Gate Runners took back full control of the Cunningham Seawall race-- now they have rebranded the weekend as the "Vancouver Running Festival." They will have a 10K on Saturday and a half-marathon on Sunday (October 21/22)

Today the price is just $80 for both (or $30 for the 10K and $50 for the half). That's a great value.
eta: there's supposedly also going to be a 5K, but I can't find that link.

I'm in for BOTH the 10K and half!! Just registered.

Who else??

Yup, I should have gone to sleep early like I planned. Instead I have signed up for two more races in the fall :roll:

Will likely register for one of the race, possibly both. I just need to make a decision on if I will be attempting my first ultra 2wks prior to the Vancouver Running Festival. I want to see how I feel after the BMO full before I pull the trigger on my ultra plans.
PB’s (official race results)
5K – 26:20; 8K – 41:28; 10K – 52:13; 15K - 1:22:43; 21.1K – 1:54:16; 30K – 2:51:34; 42.2K – 4:24:14

What is up for 2018
Feb 11th - First Half Vancouver
TBA
Planning & in my sights
Jun 9th - Puddle Jumper Classic

Run the mile you're in. Not the one behind you, and not the one in front of you - the one you are running now :) - purdy65
