Coming March 12, 2017. Get your green on! Celebrate St. Paddy’s Day at the Green Sock Half & Shamrock’n Race at Burnaby Lake. Choose from half marathon, half marathon relay, 7 miler, or 5K scenic courses in this stunning wildlife sanctuary circling the lake that was created by a glacier 12,000 years ago. Those Canadian’s know how to put on a party, oops, we mean race! with souvenir green socks, a green sock finishing medal, and pancake breakfast. A fun day for all!
