Overview

Join us for the 9th annual Big Easter Run.

This holiday themed fun run tours picturesque Jericho Beach Park.
Starting near the waterfront, the course winds its way along trails surrounded by spring blooms before looping onto the beach-side path, with unbeatable views of the North Shore and the Vancouver skyline. You may even spot a Jericho Bunny!
With mild inclines, a mixture of gravel and trail pathways, everyone is assured a beautiful and accessible run, jog or walk. The route is suitable for all ages and abilities. Leashed dogs and strollers welcome (both please start in final wave; strollers ensure you have wheels suitable for unpaved trails)

UPDATE:

For 2023 the route will be 2x laps of the 5k course.
This is due to further repair work to repair damage to sections of the trail around Spanish Bank from the King Tide, with work due to begin in the weeks leading up to the event, which will block off access to the path and trails.

Map below shows the route we hope to return to in 2024.

Charity Spotlight

For the 5th year we are partnering with KidSport BC!

About KidSport

The KidSport concept was launched in 1993 by board and staff at Sport BC as a way to help address the challenges faced by many families when registering their children in organized sport. From a modest start, KidSport has grown exponentially across the country and has become a truly national entity with 11 provincial/territorial chapters and over 180 community based chapters. From humble beginnings here in BC, KidSport issued $2.1 million in grants to 7300 kids in 2019 and has seen significant annual growth. Our mission remains the same….to remove the financial barriers that prevent some children from playing organized sport! Our vision…#SoALLKidsCanPlay!
