Becoming A Member

Thanks for checking out Vancouver Frontrunners (VFR)!

Why not drop by one or two of our regular Wednesday or Saturday runs to see how the running & walking routes and group fit with you. Like what you see? Annual memberships are only $15! Sign-up (or renew) here!

  • Wednesdays – meet at Yaletown Roundhouse at 6:30 pm
  • Saturdays – meet at Brockton Oval in Stanley Park at 9 am

    Optional post-run meals: After runs, we meet up at a rotating restaurant on Wednesday evenings and our regular breakfast hangout on Saturday mornings.

VFR also organizes regular social events for members ranging from potlucks to paddleboarding, running clinics to curling and even out-of-town races like the Whistler 50 Relay. In addition, we’re responsible for organizing Vancouver’s annual Pride Run & Walk 5/10k!

Vancouver Frontrunners (VFR) is a registered non-profit membership-funded society that provides a safe and friendly environment for the LGBTQ2S+ community and their friends to enjoy running and walking and a wide variety of social activities throughout each year.
