The Longest Day 5k &10k Race will be held on June 12 at 7:00 p.m. at the U.B.C. Thunderbird Stadium concourse.
It raises funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Vancouver Thunderbirds junior development athletes. It is part of the Timex series and the Sun Run series.
The race is followed by a huge barbecue and there's even a beer garden on site.
For the faster runners, we have $2800 in cash prizes and gift cards from the Running Room as well as merchandise prizes from Nike and Timex. There are also more than 70 draw prizes that all participants are eligible for, including getaways to the Long Beach Lodge Resort and the Hills Health Ranch. Both are fabulous. There were over 800 registered runners last year and the race received rave reviews. It's a great way to end your work week. You can get more details and register online at www.thunderbirdstrack.org.
