FAQ's - Run Surrey Run
Why a Surrey Run/Walk Virtual event?
The organizers of the event who are avid runners and walkers, working in collaboration with the City of Surrey, felt that a great city like Surrey needs it’s own road run and hence a downtown Surrey route was selected. Due to Covid all last year’s organized event came to a halt. It was decided this year to redesign the event as a Virtual event. The best part is that we can all join in as a community and stay active while following the guidelines of the BC Ministry of Health to ensure the health and safety of all those around us.
What is a Virtual Run/Walk?
For the health and safety of our participants, volunteers and community RunSurreyRun will be a virtual event. This means you can run or walk at your own time, your own preferred route, and at your own pace. All participants will receive a swag bag including a t-shirt and a RunSurreyRun Medal. The run will take place between June 1-15, 2021.
