Early bird registration is open until midnight January 31, 2023. Participants who register before this date will save $10 off the Individual 10k and $5 on the Shaw Mini Sun Run 2.5k regular registration fee. The event is open to runners and walkers of all ages and abilities.

Long-standing sponsor, Shaw Communications will return to support both the Shaw Team Division and Shaw Mini Sun Run 2.5k. OASIS returns to support the OASIS Youth Team Challenge, partners Pacific Blue Cross will continue their support of the walking division ‘Walk with Pacific Blue Cross’, and new partner Subaru joins the event as the official automotive partner and sponsor of the Volunteer Crew program.  Runners will once again be able to participate in the Virtual Vancouver Sun Run powered by Fresh Prep.

On track to be the largest running event in the country, the Vancouver Sun Run draws between 20,000 and 40,000 participants of all ages each year, and its charitable efforts have raised more than 3.3 million dollars since its inception. A new event sponsor this year, Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is supporting the Vancouver Sun Run Charity program which encourages registrants to raise funds for local charities.

The BC Cancer Foundation, Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver, Charlford House Society for Women, BC Epilepsy Society, Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon, the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Raise-a-Reader, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, and Family Services of Greater Vancouver will be the official beneficiaries of the 2023 event.
