Nothing quite compares to the energy at a HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournament. This is the second year Vancouver will be hosting the two-day tournament that will bring 15 of the top rugby sevens teams in the world, including New Zealand, South Africa, England, Russia, USA, and more.

Limited tickets have just been released for the tournament that will be coming to town on Saturday, March 11 and Sunday, March 12.

The format of the games is 7 on 7 (instead of 15 on 15) and the games are shorter than usual, so the action is much faster-paced and very high scoring. It’s perfect for those who love rugby and those who have no idea what the heck is going on! The tournament sold out last year with 33,000 seats filled each day.

Now, for every person that’s crazy about running there’s someone else that just doesn’t get it. Here’s the thing, I was one of those people right up until recently when I came to call Vancouver home. I’ve spent countless hours in gyms and fitness studios, and though I really enjoy getting exercise as much as possible, it always felt like more of a chore. I had tried running in the past, but it never clicked for me, and I’m now beginning to think it had everything to do with location.
