Thank You for your Support!

The 2018 Microsemi Science Fair Fun Run was a huge success! On May 27, 2018, the run had the largest participation on site in its 19 year history with giveaways and activities from Microsemi, STEMCELL Technologies, Geering Up, Teff Energy, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Science World, BC Hydro and CBC Vancouver! The Fun Run continues to be one of the largest event in BC’s technology sector with 47 teams and over 1,000 participants. 

Over the past nineteen years, the run has raised over $1 million for The Dr. Michael Smith Science Fair Endowment in support of Science Fair programs across BC.

Thank you to all of the sponsors and participants for helping us Set the Pace in the Knowledge Race for the 19th year!

Participants in the 5K category will have the opportunity to track their start and finish times with a bib tag timing device.  A bib tag is a small lightweight disposable device that is attached to the back of your race number.  Without the bib tag on the back of your race number, you will not receive a time.

Your time will start the moment you cross the mats at the start and then stop the moment you cross the timing mats at the finish line.
