Whistler Pride Sponsor Pride Run

We’re incredibly fortunate to once again have Whistler Pride sponsoring Pride Run and Walk with a very generous donation of 3x 2 Tickets to their Pam Ann comedy night and 3x 2 Tickets to the largest party in town, Snowball, where the headliner will be THE CUBE GUYS from Italy. That’s 12 tickets in total!!!

VFR and Whistler Pride have had a very long standing relationship, and year over year we’re thrilled to continue working with this awesome organization. Thanks to Dean Nelson and everyone else at gaywhistler.com for your continued support of Vancouver Frontrunners.

McArthur Glen Sponsors Pride Run

McArthur Glen Sponsors Pride Run
Richmond BC, Canada – July 13, 2015: Unidentified people in the new McArthurGlen Designer Outlet near the Vancouver Airport on July 13, 2015. McArthurGlen Designer Outlet was designed as a luxury shopping destination and offers 376,000 square feet of retail space.

Vancouver’s McArthur Glen Designer Shopping Centre are supporting Pride Run & Walk this year by donating a $100 gift card, to be used as a door prize at the upcoming Pride Run on July 24th.

In addition to awarding the fastest people in their gender categories, and the best dressed awards, we want to ensure that everyone will have a chance at taking home a fabulous prize. We feel this makes our event a little different to others, as everyone has a chance at winning something.

Thanks to the kind folks at McArthur Glen. We appreciate your generosity so much!!

WhiteSpot have been generous and have donated 4 x $20 gift vouchers which will be used as door prizes and giveaways at this year’s event and we couldn’t be happier.WhiteSpot

Vancouver Frontrunners meet every Saturday morning in Stanley Park, and following this we meet at the WhiteSpot on Georgia Street for some post run/walk nutrition. We’re always greeted with fantastic servers, quick to take our orders as we settle down and mingle amongst ourselves.
VFR have been visiting this location for some years now and find it to be the perfect location for brunch following a workout in the park.

Thank you kindly to all the staff and management. We truly appreciate it.

P.S. Their smash browns are AMAZING!!!
