I’m an American in Canada and in Canada’s largest race. Canada has a reputation for being some of the nicest people around, and I have to admit – during this 10K I heard more “Excuse me,” and “Sorry” comments than I think I have ever heard during any race.
When you run a large race (over 48,000 people participated), things are going to get crowded. Normally, there are some words of frustration expressed. But in Vancouver, those words are rare and the race unique.
But not all was sunny for the Vancouver Sun Run as winners were caught cheating and women were turned into men.
