Vancouver Sun Run has been cancelled
A statement has just been sent out by officials with the Vancouver Sun Run announcing that the popular BC race will be cancelled this year due to COVID-19 precautions.
The Vancouver Sun Run is Canada’s largest 10K road race and the third largest timed 10K in North America
"After careful consideration and in light of the latest information from federal and provincial health agencies, the 2020 Vancouver Sun Run has decided to cancel the 2020 event. The health and safety of our registrants, staff and volunteers is our top priority and at this time several health agencies in North America have recommended cancelling large gatherings. Although the Federal Ministry of Health continues to assess the health risk to Canadians as low in regards to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) the Vancouver Sun Run feels that is in the best interest of our participants to cancel the event."
The race was scheduled for April 19.
"This decision was not an easy one,” said Tim Hopkins, Vancouver Sun Run race director, “we are grateful to all of our volunteers, sponsors, suppliers and of course athletes for their understanding and support around this decision."
