The 38th annual BMO Sunshine Coast April Fool’s Run, presented by Coast TV Sports, will see 650-plus runners and walkers hoofing it from Gibsons to Sechelt on Sunday, April 12. The race date is later than usual due to the Easter holiday falling on the first weekend of April.

Title Sponsor, BMO Bank of Montreal, is back for a fourth year, providing generous support in the form of cash, volunteers, souvenir items, cheering aids and, best of all, team spirit!

Coast TV Sports is returning with a cash donation plus the traditional upbeat 30 minute show from race day footage, to be aired on Channel 10 in the month following the event. Running Room is also back on board with many prizes and significant race day support.

New in 2015 will be free digital race photos for all participants, courtesy of Gold sponsor Saucony, who is also providing shoes to the top local winners. Another newly added Gold sponsor is City Transfer, offering free shipping, advertising and cash support to the event.

Participants are also being extra generous this year. Online donations to the Food Bank during registration are approaching $1,000, which is nearly double last year’s total. Several boxes of food are usually collected on site as well.
