West Van's Ambleside becomes the latest venue for parkrun - a weekly, free, community 5k run/walk - part of the world's biggest movement for physical activity.

Parkrun is a free, weekly event to run, jog or walk 5k, organised by volunteers, in parks, along promenades, on forest trails, or other off-road paths. Ambleside parkrun takes place beside the Ferry Building and Ambleside Pier in West Vancouver from Saturday 9th July, and every week at the same time thereafter. Everybody is welcome at parkrun, and although many elite runners take part, it does not matter how fast participants are. They can run, jog, walk (or volunteer) accompanied by friends, family, children, even with strollers. Children from the age of four can take part, but for those under 11, we ask that a parent/guardian is within arms reach at all times. The events use a simple system to give registered participants a time for their 5k, with incentive t-shirts awarded after reaching milestones (10 events for kids, 25 for adults). From the very beginning parkrun has always been a community event promoting social connections as much as physical activity. So participants are encouraged to head to a local café - in our case Bean Around the World/ Anchor Eatery - after every event. Launched in London, England in 2004, the parkrun movement has grown to 2000 events in 21 countries, including 44 across Canada. Six million people are registered worldwide, with 350,000 participants taking part each week. To get involved participants and volunteers can register for free at our website parkrun.ca/ambleside Updates will be posted at the Facebook group: facebook.com/amblesideparkrun

Fright Nights At PNE Are Back

Running most evenings from early October until Halloween night, Fright Nights is Vancouver’s largest and most popular venue for celebrating Halloween.
In 2022 Fright Nights runs on October 7th-9th, 14th-16th, 20th-23rd, and 26th-31st. Fright Nights is not recommended for children under 12 or folk over age 65. That’s a warning, not a rule, but a good one. It’s a great place for older youth and adults, but definitely not for young children or people with genuine fears (including claustrophobia).The vast majority of Fright Night-seekers when we last went appeared to be between age 18 and 30, which isn’t surprising. What might be surprising, however, is the fact that slightly more women than men typically attend.Be prepared for a scary adventure with 7 different haunted houses.MORE>>>
