VFR Runs Suspended

November 9th: VFR Run + Walks Are Suspended For Two Weeks

The language of the current BC guidelines is somewhat ambiguous in its application to our activities as a running and social club. In the spirit of the collective task in front of us (levelling the curve) and erring on the side of caution, the board has voted to suspend VFR in-person activities for at least two weeks. We’ll keep evaluating the situation until the Provincial Health Officer clearly permits our activities.


In the meantime, stay safe, get your runs in, spend time with your family and chosen bubble family.  We may be apart, but we’re not alone.

Check here for status updates. We’ll be back!
