Saturday, August 29th played host to Vancouver Frontrunners annual member and volunteer appreciation party. It was a lovely afternoon with great company, plenty of food and tonnes of laughs. Thank you to everyone who came out. Here’s a few photo’s from the event.
We’re thrilled to announce that photo’s from Pride Run & Walk are now online on both our Facebook page and website.

Thank to everyone who came out to Pride Run & Walk 2015. This year was our largest event to date with over 460 registrants. We really can’t wait to see how much we raised for our community beneficiaries.
With everything still coming in, we’re hoping to have all the photo’s posted on this website and Facebook within the week. In the meantime, you can find the timed results of the big day at http://www.startlinetiming.com/races/2015/pride.
We’ll have more information out very soon!!!
you can still register in person at Race Package pickup, between 5.00-9.00pm at the Running Room on Denman Street – Thursday 23rd July. 679 Denman Street, Vancouver.
Alternatively, you can also register on race day at the Brockton Oval Fieldhouse, July 25th from 7.30am. However race day registrations MUST close by 8.30am, so be sure to get there early to beat the line up!
We can’t believe there’s only 20 days left for Pride Run and Walk and we’re so excited for what’s to come.
Prizes and giveaways are starting to stack up nicely and we have heard about so many fun team costumes being planned. In fact, there’s a good chance this year will have more teams registered than any other previous year!
We have Kirk Williams from CBC who will be our official MC, and in case you might have forgotten, don’t forget to bring some money with you as Picnic in Park starts just as you cross the finish line! There will be food available for purchase and a beer garden for those 19 or older.
If you haven’t registered yet, you might wanna do so now!!!!
Saturday night VFR had a social event which had an optional Man Max/Mad Men theme. The evening consisted of great food, lovely company and plenty of laughs. If there was an award for best costume, Laurie certainly takes the cake. Complete with a bullet belt and goggles, he really did look the part. Thank you, Gerry for hosting such a lovely evening.
Ever wondered where VFR go running? Well, now you can see for yourself. We have a new page called ‘Route Maps’ which you can find under ‘Run with Us’ which has maps, links to the MapMyRun versions and downloadable PDF versions that you can print.
We still encourage all new runners joining VFR for the first time to make yourself known. This will allow us to pair you up with a buddy system, just to be safe.
Should you have any questions about where we run or don’t understand some of the instructions, please feel free to Contact Us ahead of time, and we’ll be sure to answer them to the best of our ability.
Health Initiative for Men and Vancouver Frontrunners have been working together over the last 10 weeks in helping eager participants in learning to run. Today marks the end of that clinic and we’re thrilled to see our new runners graduate.
Learn To Run graduates receive a free technical t-shirt, certificates, complimentary VFR membership and very yummy rainbow cookies.
Congratulations to all who participated. We hope to see you join us for more runs, and hopefully see you at the upcoming Pride Run & Walk.
After receiving a huge response from many of our fans on our Facebook poll, VFR are happy to announce that this year’s Pride Run & Walk t-shirts will come in both Pink and Orange.
The shirts will be available in a range of sizes and will be branded with the creative graphic you see below (ignore the red background).
While it is unfortunate, our supplier is only able to provide the pink shirt in a women’s style cut, and the orange in a men’s. While some of us will still opt to purchase either colour, regardless of how we identify in gender, we ask that you keep this in mind as a medium shirt in one colour won’t fit the same way as it would in the other.
Technical t-shirts can be purchased during registration for only $15 and they’re a great to show off your accomplishment and support of Pride Run & Walk.
