VanRace Giveaway! Conquer the Wall!


NOTE: I’ve linked up with Erica at Erica Finds for her weekly Giveaway Roundup!


As I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, the West Van Run is one of my favourite local races. In fact, I’m now an official member of the West Van Run Team – promoting the 2016 race! Stay tuned for an upcoming giveaway!

However, that’s not the focus of today’s post. In fact, I’m here to promote a different race. West Van Run has team up with a brand new race in Vancouver – VanRace! And you have the chance to enter and win a free entry!

VanRace 30k/15k Seawall Race: Conquer the Wall!

2015 is the inaugural event – and Vancouver’s newest race! Come out and run with me and other members of West Van Run Team!

Here’s what you need to know:

Date: Sunday, September 6
Time: 7:30am
Start Line: Charleson Park Seawall Walk (south side of False Creek, east of Granville Island)
Distance: 15km or 30km – you can choose!

What’s the route like? Well, it’s all about the Vancouver Seawall! Here’s a route description:

Both routes start and end at Charleson Park. The 15km route heads around Science World, and continues along the Seawall until turning back at English Bay. The 30km route follows the same route as the 15km, but continues on around Stanley Park, turning around in Coal Harbour, and cutting back past Lost Lagoon before returning to Charleson Park.

I’ve run the Seawall a few times in my day. Here are a few photos of what you can expect during the race:

    Commenting!!! I may not realllly be in shape to run even 15k (though ankle does appear to be mostly healed!) but I’m sure if I happened to win I’d manage it 🙂
