  • Our goal to become the Greenest City in the world rests on engaging residents of all ages, and that starts with addressing climate change. The Great Climate Race is a fun chance for Vancouverites to get involved, and I encourage runners and non-runners alike to join the race!
    Gregor Robertson, Mayor of Vancouver
  • The Great Climate Race is not just any old 10k race on the Vancouver seawall. It is one with an environmental awareness and fundraising goal, specifically around solar power.

  • I can’t wait to run in The Great Climate Race. It is really important to show people what they can do about climate change and I want to help. I’m going to ask my family and my neighbours to sponsor me so that I can support a solar project. I’m going to tell all my friends to run with me, too. Together, we can make a difference.
    Tyger, 11, West Vancouver
  • Individuals and families across Canada can and must do their part to help solve this ominous problem—the greatest single threat to humanity’s collective survival. I am heartened to know The Great Climate Race is taking place. By engaging people of all ages and from all walks of life, such an event truly is a way for everybody to 'think globally, act locally.'
    Hon. Tom McMillan, Former Minister of the Environment, Canada
