Eleanore Cross- a long time resident of West Vancouver is an amazing women. She is 97 years old and participating in the Vancouver Sun Run for her 25th time. At the age of 78 years, she decided to get fit and her son suggested she participate in the Sun Run- a “fun run” of 10km. with the primary mandate to “promote health, fitness and community spirit and to support amateur athletics”. This would prove to be an ideal introduction to running in a friendly atmosphere.
She has run, walked the Sun Run every year since, except for one when she had open heart surgery. Eleanore walks the West Vancouver Sea Wall every day- what an inspiration! I am pleased to be an acquaintance of Eleanore’s and look forward to offering congratulations on her 25th run. Please see the link to a brief video featuring Eleanore Cross- a West Vancouver athlete.
