About the Event

The Amazing Race? Not quite.... but almost. On June 10th, 2017 the BC Lung Association's RUSH takes over Vancouver. In teams of 2, travel to locations around Vancouver to do a variety of challenges which will be physically and mentally demanding. 

Begin your day by meeting all your fellow rushers at the start line. Here we'll provide your team with a roadmap which will give you clues to all the checkpoints. Guard this with your life as you'll only get one! Solve the clues one at a time, or all at once; it's up to you!

Using your two feet or public transit, travel from checkpoint to checkpoint experiencing Vancouver like you've never done before. Some of the amazing activities that participants have been up against in the past include:

  • 50ft slip & slide;
  • The Coaster at Playland;
  • Giant hamster ball;
  • Bubble Soccer;
  • Parkour;
  • Synchronized swimming with the Women's Canadian Olympic team;
  • And much more! 


Each year we look to innovate and find new activities to challenge you. So whether you're a first time rusher or a seasoned veteran, you'll experience brand new activities and have a whole new set of stories to tell your family and friends. The event will take you all over the city and take anywhere between 4 and 6 hours to complete. 

After you have completed the minimum number of required checkpoints, make your way to the finish line where we'll have staff cheering you on and a beverage waiting for you. We guarantee you will have laughed, be challenged, met new friends and best of all had a blast discovering Vancouver. Sit back and relax with your new friends, tell battle stories, and cheer on others as they come in.

sarah&ivanWe keep coming back because we always have a really fun day. Fun isn't descriptive enough, it's always so crazy exhilarating and hilarious. The challenges test both your mind and body, and that's such an awesome adrenaline rush. Also, that grand prize though!!!
