Kimecopak partnered with the Longest Day Road Race 2024 As a Sponsor

Passionated about sustainable solutions, Kimecopak proudly joined forces with the Longest Day Road Race 2024. Beyond celebrating fitness and community spirit, this event became a platform for us to showcase its dedication to a greener future. In this article, we'll delve into Kimecopak's impactful contributions to the community through their sponsorship of the Longest Day Road Race.

Longest Day Road Race History

The Longest Day Road Race began in the 1980s as a Friday evening fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Society, celebrating summer with a post-race BBQ. It quickly became a beloved Vancouver tradition. However, a shift to Sunday mornings in the mid-90s led to a drop in participation, and the race ended by the decade's close.

In 2003, the Vancouver Thunderbirds Track Club revitalized the Longest Day Road Race, now a vibrant community event supporting the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and youth track programs. Offering 5K, 10K, and Kids’ Mile races, it attracts over 1,500 runners and many spectators.
The lively post-race party, with food, drinks, a beer garden, and a Kid's Zone, ensures family-friendly fun. Even a virtual pandemic edition couldn’t diminish its appeal, and the race returned stronger than ever in 2023 with record participation. With high satisfaction ratings and nearly 100% return rate, it’s a major BC running event fostering fitness and community spirit.
Overall, the Longest Day Road Race fulfills a two-pronged mission:
  • Charitable Support: The event functions as a significant fundraiser, currently benefiting the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and youth track programs in the area.
  • Community Engagement: It fosters community spirit by providing an inclusive and enjoyable fitness event. This is achieved through the variety of races offered, the lively post-race party with refreshments, and the dedicated Kid's Zone, catering to families.
Driven by a desire to contribute meaningfully to the community and promote healthy consumer habits through practical initiatives, Kimecopak has proudly partnered with the Longest Day Road Race 2024 as a sponsor. In this next section, let's delve into the specific actions Kimecopak is taking as a sponsor of the Longest Day Road Race 2024.
