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.

Vancouver Frontrunners were once again thrilled to work with the folks over at Health Initiative for Men (HIM) in hosting their 3rd ‘Learn To Run’ clinic.
Spanning over 10 weeks with 3 clinics per week, the goal is get non-runners from couch to 8km. Upon completing the clinic, participants were able to run the 8km course on Saturday morning – an amazing feat for just 10 weeks of training. Below are some of the photo’s where participants received their certificates and gift vouchers for graduating.
Well done, graduates! Hopefully we will see you back for more?
