Due to COVID-19, the Vancouver Sun Run office is closed until further notice. However, you can still reach our staff at info@vancouversunrun.com. In the meantime, please continue to follow provincial health guidelines.

Have more questions? Please see FAQs below.

If registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable, why are you offering the ability to transfer?

You put in the work in your training, and paid good money to be a part of the Sun Run experience. Those are not things that we take lightly. Frankly, canceling the Sun Run is devastating to us. We know that offering you the option to transfer your entry for a small fee is less than ideal, it represents the most generous solution that we can offer to you, our valued customer. 

Why can’t I get a full refund?

Your entry fee supports the costs associated with producing the race. Those costs are incurred over the weeks and months leading up to the race. In other words, we’ve spent your money on all of the things that go into producing the Sun Run for you (think race shirts, venue rental fees, equipment, advertising, communications, etc.) and cannot refund money that has been spent.

Now that the race is cancelled, why can’t I transfer to next year for free?

At the time of cancelation, the costs associated with your registration have already been incurred and they cannot be rolled over to next year’s event. Providing free transfers would mean that the Sun Run would incur twice the cost for your race in return for a single entry fee. The financial realities of this unfortunate situation make this an impossibility.

What if I don’t decide to transfer my entry to next year?

That is up to you. You do not have to transfer your entry to the 2021 event. However, if you do not choose to transfer your entry and then later decide to run the 2021 race, you would have to pay regular entry fees. 

To confirm, the $15 processing fee to transfer will cover the 2021 registration?

Yes. The $15 processing fee to transfer is a one time transfer fee that will allow Sun Run participants to move their registration to the 2021 race.

When I go to pay my $15 transfer fee, why are there additional fees on top of it?

The $15 covers the costs for your 2021 race shirt, timing bib and event production/staff wages; in addition, there is an $0.86 GST charge, as well as a $2.25 processing fee representing our registration vendor’s management costs.

When can I pick-up my 2020 Vancouver Sun Run shirt?

We are still working on the logistics of when and where we can provide a safe event shirt pick-up for runners. As soon as we are able to, we will communicate these details.

What if a team member doesn't want to run in 2021 or is no longer a part of our team?

The registrations are not attached to individual people and can be assigned to someone else if desired.

What if there were some members of our team that did not pay their 2020 registration fee?

If a team has 10 or more paid team members, then any team members that were unpaid were removed from the team and are not eligible to transfer to the 2021 event for $15.

What if I was a part of a team and paid, but the team had less than 10 paid members?

If a team had less than 10 paid members, then the team was disbanded. Any paid team members were moved to the 2020 Individual 10K category. Paid registrations are eligible to transfer to the 2021 event for $15.

I was a part of a team signed up for 2020, but my email directed me to sign up in the “Individual” Category. Why?

If this happened, it is because your team did not have at least 10 paid registrations for the 2020 event. You should sign up as an “Individual” and transfer to your 2021 team once the Team Captain has created it.

I’m a team captain looking to redeem my credits from 2020 for the 2021 race. Do I need to click “Create a New Team”?

No! Your team is already created for you. All you need to do is instruct those wishing to register for your team to go to Register.VancouverSunRun.com and click “Join an Existing Team”, and complete the registration process like always.

I’m a team captain for a 2020 team, but my email directed me to sign up in the “Individual” Category. Why did this happen?

If this happened, it is because your team did not have at least 10 paid registrations for the 2020 event. You should go to Register.VancouverSunRun.com and click “Create a New Team”. You will then be able to register yourself as Team Captain.
