I am writing to thank Bartec for donating the use of extinguishers to the Longest Day 5/10K that was held on Friday, June 14 th . We had perfect weather for the event and this, together with a great band and excellent organization and volunteers, helped create a great atmosphere for the 1200 plus runners and 300 plus spectators.
2019 was the year that we nailed every aspect of the event. We had great weather, an awesome band, and no issues at all with the running of the event. We were able to provide a fun, entertaining, excellently run event and our post run survey showed that our efforts did not go un-noticed, with 96% of our participants planning on returning next year.
These are some of the comments we received:
Excellent. Awesome! Epic. Great family fun! A race for all ages. A fun run with friends followed by a delicious meal. Fun and upbeat. Legendary. A fun way to end the week and start the summer. Excellent experience all around. Everything I expect from a well-run event. Wonderful. I will run again next year. Perfect summer night. I’ve done a LOT of races in my 62 years…and I love this one very much! Don’t miss it! Beautiful run with great apres party. Perfect all around. Fun, festive and social. The most fun race in Vancouver!
It was only with the help of Bartec that we were able to make this event both possible and the successful. We know that you receive many requests for support and we are very grateful for your continued support. I know that the funds raised for the JDRF and Elementary Track and Field Programs are very much appreciated and would only be possible through the monetary and product donations that our sponsors provided. We hope that you continue to support us as we work to further improve and grow our event.
The date for next year’s event is Friday, June 19th, 2020 and we hope that Bartec can again be part of the event. Please let us know if there is anything more that we can do in this regard. Thank you again for all of your help and we look forward to working with you in the future.
