The forecast of impending wet weather for the 11th annual BMO St. Patrick’s Day 5k, didn’t dampen the spirits of runners as nearly 2,000 runners all dressed in green lined up on Pipeline Road for the 5k run in Stanley Park on Saturday, March 12, 2016. With a little “Luck of the Irish” the sun came out for perfect running conditions, maybe even a little too perfect, as Luc Bruchet and Rachel Cliff went on to break the course records en route to victory of the 2016 BMO St. Patrick’s Day 5K ! With their overall wins, course record bonuses, mile bonuses and B.C. championship titles, Luc Bruchet and Rachel Cliff each took home $900.

Come for the Race…Stay for the Party…
It wasn’t all about fast times as the bulk of the race consisted of hundreds of runners and walkers dressed in green with some great costumes. All there to not only take part in our “Infamous” Granville Island Brewing after party but also raising funds for the Canadian Diabetes Association. For many, this was also their first 5k race!
Congratulations and cheers to everyone who took part in the 11th annual BMO St. Patrick’s Day 5k! Don’t forget to download your finisher certificate from your results page!
A special Thank You to all the volunteers and sponsors for making the day a huge success! We cannot thank you enough.
