Vancouver Sun Run 2011

Anyone doing the sun run this year? Kinda got pushed into it so and I haven't really ran a 10k before so I do not know what to expect. Any tips for first time runners? ( Most likely I going to walk the majority of it )

Hey I'm doing it as well. My best time is just under 45 mintues.
One advice I can give is do some light warmup and then stretch before the run. You can jog at your own pace. Try to enjoy it while you're there. =D

what do you recommend for pre-run/stretch warm ups?

i tore my Achilles with improper stretching and warm up 2 months ago.

As much as i never intend to run the sunrun...

...the beauitiful thing about the sunrun is that it gets people out there and train. For a lot of people, thats a huge sense of accomplishment, and it should feel like that!

Running isn't easy, i don't care what anyone says. Its also boring, and redundant. But the sun run gets people that can hardly run for 10 minutes and all of a sudden they accomplish 10km.

I'm thinking that next year i am gonna run the sun run....in bare feet.

first time running anything ever. was 305-310lbs last February and now 230lbs, wish I could of trained for this thing, but personal reasons didn't let me do so. So really hockey was my only training haha.

1hour and 9mins

had a pee break near the beginning and ran into the Chevron on Georgia, lost 5 minutes there, and then someone got TKO'd at the finish line which stalled me and everyone around me for another 5-10 minutes.

next year I am gonna be under 1 hour mark!

oh probably ran a good 10km straight and 1km sideways dodging people.

Want to. Did it last year, first time in a long time. 55 mins, it wasn't too bad I guess since it'd been a while.
