The Paavo Nurmi Run is an annual fun run held in conjunction with the Scandinavian Midsummer Festival in Burnaby, BC. The run follows the trails of the beautiful Burnaby Lake Park, starting at the North end of the parking lot off Sperlng Ave and takes the trails along the North side of the lake to the turnaround point at Cariboo Road.

We offer a 3, 5, and 10 km options, and medals are handed out for the top finishers in each age category, plus a random prize draw for all participants.

Everyone gets a souvenier t-shirt and free entry to the Scandinavian Midsummer Festival!
