You know that we Vancouverites are known for all things fitness-related — after all, when it comes to getting out and about, there’s no place better. (All we need to say is: Stanley Park Seawall.)

But there’s also nothing we love more than a good time. So if there was an event that we could get fit and party at, all at the same time, you can bet we’d be there.

On Friday, September 20, the Seawall was transformed into the ultimate night run experience for Michelob ULTRA and The Running Room‘s ULTRA Night Run. The evening featured both five- and 10-km neon-lit courses, with live DJs spinning tracks throughout the night to keep runners on their feet and moving.

More than 1,100 participants showed up to the event, which offered stunning nighttime views of the city, and upon completion, a massive celebration. Because of course, there’s no better way to reward your efforts than with a party.

A neon-lit beer garden complete with a live band and drinks met runners at the finish line to celebrate the night away! Participants also received a free t-shirt and their very own participation medal.
