Hi Everyone,

For anyone interested in trying out a running road race, there is a 5 km 
event in White Rock on Sunday June 5th. The Sandcastle City Classic, 
previously a 10k event, has changed to a much flatter 5k course. There 
are typically numerous good prizes given away afterwards and good treats 
as well. Check out http://www.sunrunners.ca/sandcastle-city-classic.

Another good event is the BlueShore Financial Longest Day 5k and 10k, as 
well as Kid's mile on Friday June 10 at 7:00pm near UBC's Thunderbird 
Stadium. This very popular event features live music and great food 
afterwards. http://www.thunderbirdstrack.org/longest-day-road-race
