Yes! The recommended route is entirely on the False Creek seawall. It starts and finishes at David Lam Park, and is almost entirely flat. The seawall is a shared space, and can be busy on weekends, so please be mindful of other users, which may include other runners and walkers, cyclists, electric scooters, etc.
We’re excited to welcome our virtual race participants to complete their 5K, 10K, or Kids Race with us at David Lam Park on Saturday September 18th! The group run is open to all Under Armour Eastside 10K virtual race runners, and you must be registered to participate.
Come run with us and our Canada Running Series ambassadors! We’ll have route suggestions for both the 5K and 10K, and Kids Race, a fun race bib for you, and some photographer friends snagging pics on course. There may be some other surprises to make the day extra fun, you’ll just have to come and see!
No bells and whistles, runners should come prepared with everything they need for their run. This isn’t a traditional race and the course is not certified, there will be no timing mats or clocks. Please come prepared with your own water and nutrition, as there are no aid stations or medical support provided.

We will not be hosting our traditional “in-person” race for the Under Armour Eastside 10K. There will not be one big race day where every participant comes to one place while starting and finishing together. However, as COVID restrictions ease and more information becomes available from Public Health, we are planning on having multiple (and smaller in-person events) during the month of September. The hope is for group runs that emulate the feeling of race day – our community running together, a start time, a finish line, some post-run treats after, and a ton of fun in between. Keep an eye on your email and our Instagram in the coming months for more details.
