Posted on our Facebook wall was this lovely photo of Marnie and Katherine sporting Pride Run & Walk’s 2014 technical t-shirt at the 2015 Schneider Electric Marathon. Congratulations ladies on getting another marathon under the belt and a huge thanks for wearing the Pride Run t-shirt. We’re sure you looked amazing out on the course!

With a new year comes a new board of directors! On December the 6th, Vancouver Frontrunners hosted their annual general meeting where one of the action items was voting on a new board of directors. We were sad to see that Paul Johnson, Jah Bilkhu, Kai Scott, Christopher Hawn all stepped down from their duties.
With that said, we are excited to announce some new members who took their places and filled a new spot:
Mark Rozenberg – Moves from Treasurer to President
Alex Cheung – replaces Mark as Treasurer.
Ian Wong – replaces Kai as Athletics Director
Clare Haurer – joins as Women’s Coordinator
Leifka Vissers – replaces Jag as Community & Sponsorship Liaison
Laurie Reemeyer – replaces Chris as Social Director
Rohan Hare – continues on as Communications Director

With the Roundhouse Community Center closed and both Wednesday’s falling on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve, Vancouver Frontrunners will NOT be meeting on either of these nights, and will also be cancelling our regular dinners.
VFR will continue to meet at the Brocton Oval Fieldhouse for our regular Saturday runs followed by brunch at the HUB restaurant on Denman Street. Regular schedules will return commencing on Saturday the 3rd of January for the new year.
The board of Vancouver Frontrunners wishes everyone a happy and joyous holiday season and hope that everyone get to spend time with family and loved ones.
