Eastside 10k

Join Team WISH in The Under Armour Eastside 10k on September 19th, 2020!

The Under Amour Eastside 10k is a timed, 10 kilometer run through the historic east side of Vancouver, and one of Vancouver’s most popular running events.  The Downtown Eastside route is the star of the show, and what makes this run one that you won’t want to miss.    

The course goes through parts of Gastown, Chinatown, and East Vancouver. With a Gastown/Strathcona course runners can expect a heritage/industrial feel to things and get to run along sections of the city that are rarely closed off to traffic, and parts of Vancouver that you may not have visited before.  

All participants get a souvenir t-shirt, and finishers receive a medal.  Save 10% by by registering for both the Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon (June 28th, 2020) AND the Under Armour Eastside 10k (September 19th, 2020).
