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 Vancouver Sun Run Sunday!

The run is supported by its loyal host committee and an army of over 2,500 volunteers.

The Vancouver Sun Run is still Canada’s largest 10K road race and is now the 3rd largest timed 10K in the world.

An incredible 41,924 registrants signed up for the 2017 Vancouver Sun Run event with participants taking in the beautiful Vancouver scenery.
