Are you a cardio contender who wants to raise money for a good cause?

There’s still time to sign up to walk or run for the Pride in Art Society in the Scotiabank Vancouver 5K & Half-Marathon!

Walkers and runners who register with our code (16VPRIDE) receive a discount on the race fee, an all-access rush pass to the Queer Arts Festival 2016 and a QAF 2016 T-shirt ($200 total value). Participants who raise $100 or more will have the option to have their registration fee reimbursed. Plus, Pride in Art board member Thierry Gudel is generously donating a bottle of bubbly to the team member who raises the most money!

Runners and athletes with racing chairs will begin the half-marathon at 7:30 am. The 5K begins at 9:30 am and is open to runners, walkers, those in wheelchairs, and those with strollers. Dogs are also welcome in the 5K!
