Hey Ocean! headlines Vancouver Sun Run Post-Race Celebration presented by Michelob ULTRA with support from Yaletown BIA
Vancouver, BC – Now in its 37th year, the annual Vancouver Sun Run will happen in a unique way. Due to the ongoing effects of the novel coronavirus, the 10k Vancouver Sun Run will take place virtually from Sunday, April 18th through to Friday, April 30th. To cap off the event, Sun Run participants will be treated to a virtual post-race celebration presented by Michelob ULTRA, with support from the Yaletown Business Improvement Association (Yaletown BIA), on April 30th.
Vancouver’s own Hey Ocean! will headline the event, and will also feature local favourites such as Jill Barber, Craig Northey from Odds and Old Soul Rebel. An exclusive link will be e-mailed to all registered participants who will then be able to RSVP after the April 13th Vancouver Sun Run registration deadline.
“The post-race celebration, traditionally held at BC place, has always been a great way for friends and family to congregate after completing the Sun Run to congratulate each other and enjoy some great music,” said Tim Hopkins, Vancouver Sun Run Race Director. “We are so pleased that Michelob ULTRA has joined us as a new Official Partner this year to help us build a way to still to celebrate our achievements together”

The show will be hosted on Side Door, an entertainment marketplace platform co-founded by award winning musician and Vancouverite, Dan Mangan. Throughout the pandemic, Side Door has specialized in creating truly interactive online events that feel spontaneous and visceral. Vancouver Sun Run participants will be able to celebrate and participate online with friends and family in a safe, fun, and engaging virtual setting.
