How to Get Started – Create a Youth Team!

Teams can include runners, joggers, walkers or wheelchair participants. Teams can be comprised of fellow students, staff, friends, or family.  There is a minimum team requirement of 20 people, which should consist of one adult for every youth entrant in order to qualify to have a team. Any combination of youth, sports teams, youth groups or youth clubs are welcome to participate in the Youth Team Division!

In case you need it, here are step-by-step instructions on how to create a team!

Please note: Adults & youth may participate in the Shaw 2.5k Mini Sun Run as part of a Team when they register and pay the full team rate. Team members participating in the Shaw 2.5k Mini Sun Run, will not have their names listed in the Vancouver Sun Run results as this is not a timed event. Youth participating in the 10k Vancouver Sun Run or Shaw 2.5k Mini Sun Run as part of a team must select an adult sized tech shirt, youth sizing is not an available option in the Shaw Team Division.

Joining A Team:

Your Team Captain would have shared a link for you to join your Youth Team; alternatively you can also search the registration site by your team name.
