The 5K STEMCELL Science Fair Fun Run will begin and end on Athletes Way between Salt & Manitoba. The race will head West to Columbia, left to Walter Hardwick, left again heading East to Ontario, right to 1st Ave. The race will then head West all the way along 1st Ave to under the Cambie Bridge turning right on Spyglass to the seawall, left onto seawall past Mahony & Sons and continue on to Charleson Park, turning left onto the pathway through the park and coming out on Sawyers Lane, left on Moberly, right on Commodore, and back along 1st Ave then left again on Ontario and left again on Athletes Way to the finish line on Salt.

Join in the fun with your young runner and take part in the 1K Mini Fun Run. Strollers are welcome with no additional entry required for the stroller contents!

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.
