The Longest Day Road Race is an annual event full of fun for all ages. It features three different runs and lots of post-party celebrations at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

Presented by the Vancouver Thunderbirds and the City of Vancouver, the event has timed 5 km and 10 km runs as well as a short 1 mile run for kids. Participation in the kids’ race comes with a goodie bag, personalized number to wear, and access to a special play area and party. Meanwhile, folks who register for the longer distances receive a race bib and other bonus items. The first 1,200 people to pick up their race packages also get a running hat.

The top three runners in the 5 km and 10 km runs receive awards. Gift cards are also distributed to the top runners in select age groups. For other folks who want a chance at winning valuable prizes, anyone who donates at least $20 to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank is entered into multiple draws.

After the runs are complete, everyone makes their way to the Thunderbird Stadium Concourse, where there’s live music, a beer garden and a barbeque. All participants receive a meal which features things like hamburgers, hot dogs, ice cream, pies and juice. That’s all part of the post-run barbecue party! There are vegetarian options. Alcoholic beverages cost extra.

Come join us for an evening run around the beautiful UBC Campus followed by a post-run party featuring a BBQ, cold food, desserts, drinks, picnic area, live band, beer garden and kids’ party zone. This event will be in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
