A runner races up the Red Bull 400 course in Whistler.
What: Known as the “steepest race in the world,” the almost-vertical race challenges competitors with a single objective: First one to the top wins. Testing both speed and endurance, this race challenges runners with 400 metres on a 37° incline from the bottom of a ski jump, straight to the top.
What: With lively entertainment and delicious treats, the Glitter Unicorn Festival is both a “fun-raiser” and a “fundraiser.” An assortment of freezies will be on sale to keep you cool in the summer weather. Admission is free but all sales will be donated to the Surrey Food Bank. A bottle drive will also be on-site so bring your recyclable bottles for donation.
What: The free, outdoor concert is part of the VSO’s lineup of summertime outdoor concerts to celebrate its 100th anniversary. A pre-event begins at 7:15 pm with student ensembles by the VSO School of Music. This will be followed by the main event performed by the VSO from 8:30 pm to 10 pm, with the orchestra playing symphonic hits such as Leonard Bernstein, excerpts from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and John Williams’ scores to Star Wars. Food trucks will also be present at the site for the event.
