We meet at 5:55 pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, year round, sun, rain or snow at the False Creek Community Centre on Granville Island in Vancouver. The community centre has changing rooms with lockers, showers and saunas. There is some free parking close to the community centre. Tuesday is the best evening for newcomers to join us.
You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or to let us know that you’ll be dropping by for a run.
We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you!
Pacific Road Runners (PRR) is a recreational running club, with members interested in leading a fit and active lifestyle combined with social events. We compete, but we don’t enter expecting to win. We’re more interested in achieving personal goals and having fun doing it.
We provide a safe, supportive group with which to train. Our runners cover a variety of pace groups with 10k race times ranging between approximately 37-62 minutes.
Where we run: We're very lucky in that we have a wide choice of scenic and relatively traffic free routes to choose from. Some popular routes include: Around False Creek, either past Science World, or shorter over Cambie Bridge, and back over Burrard Bridge. West to Kits Beach and Kits Pool and back, or continue to Jericho Beach. Across Burrard Bridge, and the seawall to English Bay. Continue on the Stanley Park Seawall to 2nd or 3rd Beach, or around Lost Lagoon, or even up to Prospect Point. Up the hill to Queen Elizabeth Park, and back through Shaughnessy.
How fast do we run: You should be comfortable running continuously for a minimum of 20-30 minutes. Our slowest members run 10 kilometers in a little over an hour. At the other end of the scale, we have some members who cover the distance in about 40 minutes. Most are somewhere in between. If you are unsure whether you can keep up, join us any Tuesday. We start out with a 2 mile warm-up loop, along the False Creek Seawall, to Stamps Landing and back, at a pace our slowest members are comfortable with.
How our run groups are organized: Our organization is informal. We do not have regular run leaders. Groups of different abilities form every night, and the group members decide how far they are going to run, and where. As a new member we will ensure you have someone to run with.
We don't want you to join right away. Come down and enjoy the experience of running with us a few times first, any Tuesday, 5:55pm at the False Creek Community Centre. There's no drop-in fee. If you're still interested, then complete the membership process below.
PRR membership is inexpensive and it pays off! Here’s a list of annual benefits for PRR members:
Some years we also offer subsidized club-branded athletic clothing. And of course, you get to run & socialize with a great group of people. Pretty good for just $45!
The membership year for Pacific Road Runners and BC Athletics is January 1 to December 31. Unless otherwise noted, all memberships will expire on December 31st of each year.
