The Big Elf Run is returning to Vancouver this weekend, and it’s the perfect opportunity to flash your red and green wardrobe.

It’s the fifth consecutive year for the fun run, with all of the proceeds going to support the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.

Over 700 runners and walkers are expected to join the themed event that rallies around fitness, festiveness, and a charitable spirit.

Participants will have their choice of a 1 km “wee elf” run or a 5 km or 10 km “big elf” run or walk, both of which take place around the beautiful Stanley Park.
