The 30th Annual VANCOUVER SUN RUN will take place in the streets of downtown Vancouver on Sunday morning, April 27th 2014.  Last year’s event attracted 48,196 participants – runners, joggers, walkers and wheelchair participants.  Already Canada’s biggest and best run, we are looking at an even larger number of participants this year.

The start time for the main run will be 9:00am near the vicinity of Georgia and Thurlow Streets.  The competitive Wheelchair Division start will be at 8:40am from the same start location.  The Mini Sun Run will begin at 8:00am on Pacific Boulevard (between BC Place and the Plaza of Nations).  Both courses will be lined with water stations and will have musical entertainment.

City of Vancouver road closures will be in effect along the route and Vancouver Police will be directing traffic.  Attached, please find a copy of the  2014 road closures. We will also have route maps and event information in the Sun Run Supplement in the Vancouver Sun on April 23rd, 2014
