The exhibit is open at BC Place Stadium. It will be open for six months. The show will be open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at Gate A of BC Place.

The exhibit has several parts. Sun Run participants can write their favourite memories on a piece of paper and post it on the wall.

Displays include original artwork by artist Tiko Kerr. One wall is a display of all the trophies and medals. Every race had new T-shirts. The T-shirt wall has shirts from all 30 years.
