VANCOUVER – August 11, 2015

Canada Running Series is excited to announce a new competition for the Vancouver Eastside 10k, focusing on the Run Crews and Clubs of Vancouver as well as our local charities. Each Run Crew or Club chooses a partner charity and has two ways in which to help raise much needed funds, both with a competitive element.

Charity Fundraising Competition

  • Crew who raises the most funds for their charity (by midnight September 18) will be recognized by Canada Running Series and get some serious bragging rights
  • Crew will also receive five free “season’s passes” for Canada Running Series West 2016 (five entries into each of the three Vancouver races – #Modo8k #ScotiaHalf and #Eastside10k)
  • The Crew with the most registered participants will receive a $100 donation from Canada Running Series to their selected charity

Charity Race Competition

  • Fastest five times from each Run Crew and Club will be counted and combined for a “Crew Time”
  • Crew or Club with the lowest cumulative “Crew Time” will receive a $500 donation from Canada Running Series to their selected charity
  • If a Crew has five or more female runners registered, the fastest five times will be combined and the lowest cumulative “Crew Girls Time” will receive an additional $200 donation to their selected charity



  • Crews and Clubs must choose from one of the official Eastside 10k Charities and set up a fundraising page at
  • Must commit to fundraising at least $200 to be eligible for the competitions
  • Must notify Canada Running Series of the team members’ names at least one week prior to Race Day for inclusion in the Race Competition
