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 the many dedicated volunteers who help with LGRR events as well as the many other running events held each year in Vancouver and beyond. We could not put our races on without your support. #NVW2017

Thanks to Marty Wanless, LGRR will have a chance to promote the Oasis Shaughnessy and the Vancouver Running Festival at the Vancouver Sun Run Expo, April 21-22. The Expo is open from 10 am to 7 pm on the 21st, and 10 am to 5 pm on the 22nd. We're looking for volunteers to come and hand out rack cards and promote LGRR. If you're able to help out, even for a few hours, please email me. Thanks for your help!

Hello, are they any invitation codes available for the BMO marathon - youth 8k race? Thank you.
Who remembers the old Chandler Road Race that was held every Good Friday from 1958 until the late 80's? It was named after William Chandler who won the 1909 Vancouver Marathon. I ran the Chandler race in 1980.
Some great names on the winners list, Ian Fisher [friend and HH training partner] in 67 the year I was born! Jerry Tighe my former Coach at HH and current and probably until I retire Coach John Hill in 80 when I was just 13 years old and of course Ivor Davies former Coach of many including Ian, Jerry and John I believe.

Thank you Frank. Just speaking earlier today of the Chandler Road race which was Good Friday for our family for many years. Can remember coming off the Burrard St Bridge and at the main intersection a VW Van ran through our security and hit me flying Got up and finished trying to catch up. Tom won that year certainly sore later in day as we always took the ferry to Ladysmith for the weekend with Cheryl's folks. Jack 1 (1 week ago)Don Basham:
