Our members span a wide range of abilities and ages but share a common enthusiasm for running. Most prefer road and cross-country running, but some also participate in track events, while a few are drawn to ultramarathons on road and trail. We field both competitive and social teams in road relays every year and for many these are the highlight of the running calendar.
This group is open to existing members and potential members. Please post all your race results or use this as a discussion forum.
Thanks to Elinor for organizing the LGRR bike ride this morning. Robert, Cynthia Stout and I even found Jack Taunton along the route cheering us on. I hope that next time more riders will join us and we can have brunch at the Milltown Pub. Stay tuned for a Sept date.
For those of you interested, Elinor and I are meeting at Platform 7 Coffee on West Broadway at 9 am, then cycling the Arbutus Greenway to Marpole and back, and ending our ride with treats from Beaucoup Bakery at 6th and Fir. Just let me know if you are joining us, and where along the route.
When complete, the Arbutus Greenway will enable you to walk or cycle continuously from Marpole in South Vancouver to False Creek.
...or maybe a different route :)

Still debating about whether I can juggle a run and dog walk and do a ride with you girls...what time do you think you'll be going by 37th Ave. If I can make it I'll be there (5 hours ago)
Squamish Days 8k Road Race - If we gathered another 4 names for a team registration, it only costs $15 each (until August 1st.) We already have 5 members registered individually. I'm organizing a run/hike up the Sea to Summit Trail afterwards. Please comment below or message me if you want to be included in the team registration.
Repairs to the inside lanes of the track will begin anytime. We're going to do hill repeats today - warm up on the track, 8 x hills A-B-A, cool down and dynamic stretches on the track afterwards. I'll monitor the progress of the repairs and decide what to do during the process.
Look who passed me on the Sunshine Coast Trail! LGRR in the wilderness!
Quite the spot fr an informal club meeting - I hope you kept the minutes.... (5 days ago)

The info is in the link. It would be nice to have an 8-person relay but a 4-person relay minimum. a 2 person relay so soon after the Okanagan marathon is out of the question! The more on the team I believe the less overall cost. 1 (1 week ago)Beverli Barnes:

Last call for Summerfast entrants. Use discount code LGRRCREW5 to sign up online before 7 pm this evening, and remember to register as a LGRR member. There's cake to be won. 🍰 Good luck everyone!
3 sets of 4 x 400m with decreasing intervals. 😀
Runners racing this weekend please take it easy.
And now for something completely different! Elinor suggested we get involved in this year's HUB Bike to Shop Days (July 21 to 23) by taking part in a club ride on Sunday, July 23rd along the Arbutus Greenway. We could start the ride in Kits, and participants could join at various meeting spots - West 16th, King Edward, etc and we could all have a coffee at the Milltown Pub then ride home again. Please let me know if you're interested.
#143 Arbutus Greenway
Here comes the Arbutus Greenway - a dream come true for Vancouver! This former railway is now a safe urban space for people to enjoy. The trail starts at Fir St and 5th Ave near Granville Island and runs 11km on a paved and separated path to Milton Street near the Fraser River. Oh Wow!!!!!!!!
I think it is a great idea but I unfortunately cant make it. 😥 (1 week ago)Cynthia Stout:
