Let’s get moving on Sept 8th, 2019
The Forever Young Club is proud to be sponsoring the 5th annual Forever Young 8K. There are many senior (55+) walkers and runners in our communities. This event is a chance for them to gain well-deserved recognition for their commitment to fitness. The Forever Young 8K celebrates active seniors, setting an example to encourage all seniors to adopt a healthy lifestyle. We don’t want to be a small part of a big running event – we want to have our own running event! The finishers last year could not have been more proud of their medals and event T-shirts, symbols of their physical accomplishments.
The Forever Young 8K is a Not for Profit event. Our charity of choice is the Dream On Seniors Wish Foundation.
The Forever Young 8K is sanctioned by BC Athletics.
On September 8, 2019, the walk/run will start at the Richmond Olympic Oval Olympic Riverside Plaza.
You will pass water stations at four locations on the route and volunteers will be cheering the participants at each Kilometre marker. The dyke course is flat and consists of compact gravel.
55 – 59, 60 – 64, 65 – 69, 70 – 74, 75 – 79, 80 – 84, 85 – 89, 90 – 94, 95 – 99, 100+
