It’s Canada’s largest annual 10k road race, and this Sunday, April 22, the Vancouver Sun Run returns to the city’s downtown core.

Tens of thousands of participants are expected and those who still want to register have until midnight tonight (Tuesday) to do so.

The route begins at Burrard and Georgia Street. From there, runners make their way towards Stanley Park, continuing along English Bay to Hornby Street, then onto Pacific Avenue, across the Burrard Street bridge exiting onto 2nd Avenue.

Costumes are not mandatory, but encouraged.
