We love our communities.

New partnership: Modo & Canada Running Series

Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines! Er… lace up your runners!

We’re proud to announce that Modo is the official Automotive Sponsor for the 2014 Canada Running Series Western Events, which includes the – ahem – Modo Spring Run-Off 8k (yep, we’re Title Sponsor!), the Scotia Half-Marathon & 5k and the second annual Eastside 10k!

You know what that means: time to train! The Modo 8k is only a few months away!


Established to promote healthy lifestyles through running – especially in our youth – the Canada Running Series Foundation has a mission of giving back to the communities they run through. The foundation’s mandate of fostering community pride and supporting grassroots organizations is well aligned with the values intrinsic to our locally operated, member-owned co-operative. When you support the Western events in the Canada Running Series, you’ll help us support worthy local causes, while proving that a car-free lifestyle can be vibrant and fun!


The first event on the CRS calendar is the Modo Spring Run-Off 8K on March 23, 2014. The race course does a loop of Stanley Park, beginning and ending at the Stanley Park Pavilion.
