ScanSports presents the Scandinavian Centre Sun Run team!

ScanS­ports presents the Scan­di­na­vian Cen­tre Sun Run team for the run on Sun­day April 14th, 2019!

This year we’re try­ing for a 2.5 km Mini Sun Run team as well — we need lots of run­ners to qual­i­fy as a team so please spread the word!

ScanS­ports will pay all the reg­is­tra­tion fees except $10 — so each run­ner only pays $10. (except for the parents/guardians in the 2.5k who are free, explained below) Reg­is­ter online:

Team name: Scan­di­na­vian Cen­tre  (for the 10 km) or Scan­di­na­vian Cen­tre — Youth (for the 2.5 km)

All par­tic­i­pants get t-shirts, adult 10km get a “tech­ni­cal” shirt, and the mini sun run gets a col­or-your-own cot­ton tee

The 10km is timed with race bibs and the 2.5 is not. Every­one gets into the fair at BC place sta­di­um after­wards.

For the mini sun run, par­ents (or anoth­er adult friend) can run for free with a child (1 adult per child) — both adult and child have to reg­is­ter, but the par­ent is free. Extra adults in the fam­i­ly (or adults on their own who just want a short­er run) can reg­is­ter as well, but they have to pay.

Reg­is­tra­tion dead­line for teams is March 8!

Con­tact with any ques­tions!
