Monday: Thanksgiving Sea to Sky Run


With winter approaching and a chill in the air, some people take that to mean the days of driving their classic car are numbered. But don’t pull the cover over your baby too soon, because the Annual Thanksgiving Day Sea to Sky Run takes place each year on Canadian Thanksgiving Monday!  This is a quick, local, (free) and fun meetup to “give thanks” for another fine season of motoring.

What: A casual cruise and meetup with fellow classic car owners. Drive the best part of the Sea-to-Sky Highway on a quiet holiday morning, and enjoy the company of classic car nuts before you have to head off to the in-laws for Thanksgiving dinner! We plan it so that you can be back home by midday. Some of you might have done a Sea to Sky run recently with your various car clubs, but its always fun to mix all the marques together and meet new people. And really, who can say no to the beautiful views and winding turns past ocean and mountains – especially on a holiday! The drive starts in North Vancouver, with a destination of Galileo Coffee in Britannia Beach on the Sea to Sky highway. Enjoy a coffee or breakfast and the company of fellow car nuts and then return home at your leisure (or continue on to Squamish or Whistler if you wish!). In previous years we have seen between 30 to 70 cars join us on the run, with everything from “Magnum PI” Ferraris to Pebble Beach Talbots enjoying the drive. We look forward to seeing you!


This event traditionally benefits local Food Banks. Please bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to the Squamish Food Bank. We don’t have a lot of space to carry food back (we have a Mini, an Alfa, and a Beetle’s worth of space), so a few items each is ideal.

When: Thanksgiving Monday, October 14th, 2013 8:30-11:30am. Meet at Superstore at 8:30, depart for Britannia Beach at 9:00am.

Where: Meeting at 8:30am in the North Vancouver Superstore parking lot, near the north end of the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge. Gather in the northeast corner, near the gas station, or wherever there is parking available [MAP]. We will be departing this location at 9:00am in convoy to our destination at Galileo Coffee in Britannia Beach on the Sea to Sky highway.
