Scenic Oceanside Course
June 5, 2016
Run with us at any time. Thursday night however, is our mid-week feature run where club ambassadors are designated to meet and run with new runners! We meet at 6:00pm at the South Surrey Recreation Centre at 146th and 20th Ave. in South Surrey every Thursday.
The Semiahmoo Sunrunners Running club was founded in 1981 at the suggestion of Myron Neville to Tom and Cheryl Howard. Tom was a Canadian Olympic athlete who ran a 4th place finish in the Boston Marathon in 1978. Cheryl was also an Olympic athlete competing in rowing.
The inaugural meeting was held at the home of well known local veterinarian, Dr. Olafson. Eight people showed up and the club was formed. By 1982 the club had grown large enough to hold the first Terry Fox run in South Surrey.
The first running of the Sandcastle City Classic was run in 1984, making the 2008 edition of the race the 25th anniversary.
