There are two signs of spring in Vancouver. The first is the pink blast of cherry blossoms lining our streets and parks, and the second is the awakening of fun runs in the city. The first on the docket is coming up quickly as the Modo Spring Run Off 8K takes place in Stanley Park on Sunday, March 23rd. This 8km fun run around Lost Lagoon and the Stanley Park Seawall also benefits the Take a Hike Foundation.
Online registration is now closed but you can still register this weekend. Late registration is available on Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 10:00am until 4:00pm at Running Room, 679 Denman St. Walk up 8k registration $60 (tax included).
Included with Registration
When you register for the Modo Spring Run Off 8K you will receive a technical event shirt in gender-specific sizing, all finishers receive the Finisher’s Medal, a clearly-marked course with two aid stations stocked with water for Gatorade. Those who have fundraised for Take A Hike are in the running for some great prizes from Modo carsharing service. There is also a 1-month free Modo Membership + $40 carsharing credit available for all participants. To redeem, email proof of race registration or a pic of your race bib to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The race finishes at the historic Stanley Park Pavilion, which offers a great indoor space where you can warm up by the fire, purchase a burger (proceeds benefitting Take a Hike), or enjoy a refreshing beverage. Enjoy free samples from PowerBar and Oasis Juice, and the Modo Community Fair will include booths from Vancouver Farmers Market, Maker Mobile, the Vancouver Tool Library, Victory Gardens, HUB: Your Cycling Connection, and Take a Hike Foundation.
