We lucked out for the 5th year in a row, and had amazing weather again! One day we are not going to be so lucky.

We picked a new venue this year, mainly because of the horrific parking prices in Stanley Park. Iona Beach, Richmond. Near the airport, it seemed to fit being a travel agency!

The 4km jetty was a perfect challenge our runners and walkers to show off their talents. With planes flying overhead and bird life all around we set out along the jetty.

Zahida was the first to cross the finish line, running the 8km, followed very quickly by Carol, our fastest walker.

We had several entries for "sexy short" however Karen took the win for the second year in a row. Follow by Nicole as a runner up.

Next year we will have a new award, "Wild Hat".

This year Marie from Insight to Wellness was not able to do her pre race stretch, due to a scheduling conflict, however we hope she will be able to join us next year.

The day was full of laughs, food and fun. Raising money for the Vancouver Downtown Eastside. Thank you to everyone who attended to support The Travel Group as well as the Vancouver Downtown East Side. Mark your calendars for next year, June 22nd.
