THE GIST: The Spaceships 5K Fun Run offers a 5km(ish) run through some of North Vancouver's beautiful trail systems and pathways.  An approachable, slow rolling circuit that favours those looking for a scenic yet challenging route.  All funds raised will go directly to Spaceships Youth Empowerment Society, an organization that umbrellas both Varsity Initiative and Girlvana Yoga.

SO, WHATS WITH THE 5.1? We wanted to do something a little different - take advantage of our "mountainous" surroundings per se - by providing an extra challenge at the end of the run to make you that much more satisfied of a job well done.  You know that last 50 meter sprint at the end of a run? Well, we just added an extra 100 meters... straight uphill. Walk it, jog it, run it - an extra push with free high fives at the top (and h2o).

The Spaceships Charity Run supports the local and community-based "Spaceships Youth Empowerment Society", a not-for-profit society that focuses on empowering young adults by creating safe spaces to practice self-consciousness, and cultivate powerful relationship and leadership tools through yoga, movement, and community focused initiatives. Through this run, our mission is to build awareness and create resources to support the society in attaining its goals and provide opportunities for youth inclusion that may otherwise be out of reach.
