Huge crowds running past our door today for the Vancouver 2010 Sun Run. Apparently 51,397 registered for the event this year. My daughter ran it for the first time without training, with teammates from her Ultimate league, and finished in 19,852nd place and finished in 1:10:29. And that’s exactly the beauty of the Sun Run. I loved seeing how many took strollers or walked just to take part.

Before the run started, inside the Sun Run headquarters at the Hyatt Regency hotel, the Vancouver Sun’s vice-president of promotions, Jamie Pitblado, addressed a breakfast audience of media and race VIPs.
Aside from wishing all in attendance a Happy Mother’s Day, Pitblado announced the total registration for today’s Sun Run at 51,397 participants.
