The Big Elf Run
What (from 2022): The perfect way to make room for all those mince pies and shortbread cookies you're about to start scoffing, sign-up (and dress-up) for this 8th-annual holiday-themed fun run. Staged on the beautiful trails in Vancouver's super-scenic Stanley Park, 5km, 10km or 15km run/walk routes are available––plus a 1km Wee Elf Run for kids––and there's always a great party atmosphere as you join hundreds of other happy elves on the big day. A DJ, prize giveaways and vendor stands add to the festivities and the event is aimed at all ages and abilities (pets and strollers welcome). Keep in mind that this year's event is raising funds for the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, and there will also be a toy drive here on the day. Your registration fee includes an elf name custom bib, elf toque, a made-in-BC wooden ornament medal and more!
