Frontrunners Being Awesome in 2019!

by admin

Taking a look back at the year that has been, our 36th year, Frontrunners were busier than ever being completely awesome!

Athletics

In between our many social activities we still managed to find some time to run this year. In addition to our weekly rain or shine Saturday or Wednesday runs, Frontrunners had a blast participating in:

  • ‘First Half’ Half Marathon
  • St. Patrick’s Day 5K
  • Sun Run
  • BMO Vancouver Marathon
  • Scotia Half + 5K
  • Pride Run & Walk, hosted by Frontrunners! Almost 400 came out to run and walk, cheered on by 60 volunteers and hundreds of family and allies in glorious weather! See you in 2020!
  • Eastside 10K
  • Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon
  • Whistler 50 Mile Relay & Ultra

Giving Back

Vancouver Frontrunners proudly supports and raises funds for the award-winning Out In Schools program and the LOUD Foundation Pride Youth Scholarship Fund.
