ScanSports presents the Scandinavian Centre Sun Run team!

runnersScanS­ports presents the Scan­di­na­vian Cen­tre Sun Run team! Once again we have entered a tem in the Van­cou­ver Sun Run, and we need team mem­bers! This fun annual run takes place in down­town Van­cou­ver on April 19th at 9 am. It’s one of Canada’s largest 10 km runs, and you can be part of it! As an added incen­tive, Scans­ports will pay $10 of your entry fee.   To enter, you can either:   Reg­is­ter online ( to join an exist­ing team to reg­is­ter or login to search for Scan­di­na­vian Cen­tre). You can choose the ‘invoice Scans­ports’ option and you won’t have to pay online, but please make note of the total, and send a cheque payable to Scans­ports for the total minus $10.


Reg­is­ter via cor­po­rate entry form – copies are on the board at the Scan­di­na­vian Cen­tre. Please com­plete the form and pro­vide cash or cheque for the reg­is­tra­tion total minus $10.

The final team entry dead­line is March 19th (please hand in forms and cheques by the 18th to give me a day to col­lect verify)

We will arrange a time to pick up the shirts and tim­ing bibs before the run, and after the run we plan to go for  a team brunch. We’ll pick a place and any­one who wants to meet up after­wards can make their way there after the race.

Any ques­tions please con­tact Karina — 604–728-6572
