The Sun Run I feel is almost a requirement as Vancouver Runner! If you mention it everyone has done it once or knows someone who trains for it etc. With this is mind it is the largest 10k race in Canada! So if you have issues with crowds this probably isn't the race for you.
You get a cotton t shirt which is why I gave the 3 stars for race swag because I personally prefer a tech shirt!
The most challenging part of the race is the burrard street bridge and the race actually starts on the downhill hence the 3 rating.
The Expo and post race celebrations are awesome, people try and run in costume. It's always a fun time. Other highlights include athletic stores coming out with silly cheering signs such as "Worst Parade Ever!"
It's not the most expensive race you'll run and you can run in teams and for charity.
Be mindful when signing up for a wave . I put myself in the 1 hour half mark and ended up passing people the wave ahead of me!
Also carpool. The race is in the heart of down town and if you find parking it's expensive. Transit is also a nice option!
