The must-do family-friendly event of the season is upon us! The Vancouver Sun Run returns with in-person, online, and hybrid options! Once again, the Vancouver Sun Run will be Canada’s largest 10k road race. It seems as though the Sun Run has become a rite of passage for Vancouverites. Family Fun Vancouver is especially thrilled with the kid-friendly 2.5k mini sun run!

The Shaw Mini Sun Run is for those who aren’t keen to run the full 10k or for families wishing to get their little ones in on the experience. Parents need to accompany any children who are eight years and under. There is no registration fee for adult escorts or parents – you do need to register though. There is a cost if you want a t-shirt. Please note there is no race-day registration for the Shaw Mini 2.5k Sun Run.

The Shaw Mini 2.5k run heads east on Pacific Blvd from the 10k finish line; turn left onto Keefer Street; left onto Abbott Street; right onto Expo Blvd and then left onto Terry Fox Way; work your way back to Pacific Blvd towards the finish line at the Arena.

There will be plenty of entertainment at the Mini Run. Dozens of mascots and performers will keep the runners hopping at the starting line.
