About the Event
Running should be fun, so at Van Run Club, we create events that are fun and keep us active. Come out and be part of the community.
The Run Scavenger Hunt is going to be an easy 30 min social jog in and around Yaletown. We'll give you a set of clues, solve them, take a photo for proof (we're naturally skeptical people :P) and get back in 30 mins.
There will be additional points for creativity, costumes and more. Speed doesn't count for everything.
