The Vancouver Sun Run is upon us. This Sunday, in fact!
This is Canada’s largest 10K road race and has been such since it started in 1985.
Considering its size, lots of routes will be affected to clear the way for all the participants.
This may affect your transit trip on Sunday so make sure you know before you go!
Our alerts page has the full list detours and changes.
For runners and cheering sections, the Expo and Millennium Lines will start service half an hour earlier.
SeaBus will begin at 7 am running on a 15 minute schedule until 3 pm when it will return to a regular Sunday schedule.
To prevent long line-ups after the Sun Run, SkyTrain riders can pre-purchase return tickets prior to the race.
Portable fareboxes will be set up at Bridgeport, Burrard, Granville, King George, and Vancouver City Centre stations.
They will also be set up at Stadium-Chinatown Station, Granville Station, Vancouver City Centre Station and Yaletown-Roundhouse Station after the race.
For more information and a map of the affected area, take a look at the event posting on the TransLink’s website.
