Open Road Records

Some faster times than those shown below may not be record eligible. For example, since 1988 the Vancouver Sun Run 10K has been run on a course that is not record eligible due to the net downhill configuration of the course.

In order for a course to be record eligible the direct line distance between the start and the finish cannot exceed 50% of the distance of the course, and the net downhill cannot exceed 1m/km. A complete list of the conditions that must be met in order for a record to be ratified can be found here.

BC Native Records

Native records are set by BC athletes, irrespective of where the competition was held.

20 Fall Classic 10K 29,847

The scores are calculated by applying the following formula to the times for the top 20 men and the top 20 women, and summing the individual scores.

S = (141000/T) x D^1.0631 for men

S = (167000/T) x D^1.0425 for women

where T is the time in seconds, D is the race distance in km, and S is the calculated score.
