The West Van Run is a great spring 5km or 10km run on March 1st. It’s timing makes the 5k option a great warmup for the Sun Run, and the 10k an early test for those training for the 1/2 or Full BMO Vancouver marathons. It is also a great race along the scenic West Vancouver Seawall for those looking for a different perspective from the usual Stanley Park routes.
Let’s build a Running Community, NOT a Community Run
One of the tag lines on the West Van Run is “Let’s build a running community not a community run!“I love this as it connects with my philosophy that “running is a team sport” and Christopher McDougall‘s sentiment that “The reason we race isn’t so much to beat each other, but to be with each other.”
To promote our running community, West Van Run has asked me to form a team to take part in this year’s run.
