Concord Pacific’s #OwnYourRun is a free five-week run and meet-up series for runners of all levels starting on Thursday, April 28.

People are invited to run, walk, and do everything in between in a fun and supportive group environment. No registration is needed.

Lululemon and three of their All-Star Run Ambassadors will be leading the scenic roundtrip 6 km along the False Creek seawall.

As well as guiding the participants through warm-ups and the route, run leaders will also be giving away two $250 gift cards every week to the runners that show the best spirit.

Runners will gather on Thursday afternoons at 5:15 pm at Concord Community Park near Science World, then depart at 5:30 pm. And all fitness levels are welcome in the challenge as no runner will be left behind.

After the run is complete, participants are invited to stretch, socialize, and relax in Concord Community Park with an Optimi superfood smoothie.

One $2,500 winner will also be short-listed by the All-Star Run Ambassadors and drawn as the person that Owned their Run and had the Best Community Spirit during the 5-week run series. Both in-person spirit and online engagement using the hashtags #OwnYourRun and #LiftYourCommunity will be taken into account.

The winner will be awarded on Global Run Day on Thursday, June 1, the last day of the series. They will then choose a local charity that will receive a $2,500 donation from Concord Pacific and Lululemon.
