A little “Irish Luck” led to Perfect Conditions for Vancouver’s Best Running Party!

We called upon our Irish friends for a little ‘Luck’ and they did not disappoint as the rain held, providing ideal conditions for the 12th annual BMO St. Patrick’s Day 5k. Lads and Lassies all dressed in green lined up on Pipeline Road to chase the Maserati ‘Levante’ pace car on a scenic 5k course (mapped by RunGo) in Stanley Park on Saturday, March 18, 2017. There was excitement at the front of the pack with a sprint finish by 2016 Olympian, Luc Bruchet and Canadian cross-country champion, Ross Proudfoot with Proudfoot nipping Bruchet at the finish line for the win. Dayna Pidhoresky took the win in the women’s field. Click here to read the full report in Canadian Running Magazine.

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 Vancouver’s Best Running Party but also raising funds for Diabetes Canada. For many, this was also their first 5k race!

Congratulations and cheers to everyone who took part in the 12th annual BMO St. Patrick’s Day 5k and a big THANK YOU to all the amazing volunteers who helped make it all happen. See you next year on March 17, 2018!
