Vancouver Eastside 10K Crew Challenge [VIDEO]

The Vancouver Eastside 10k Crew Challenge is on! Watch this first in a series that Jeff Pelletier is producing for the Canada Running Series. The video showcased friendly rivals East Van Run Crew and Fraser Street Run Club. If you watch closely, you’ll see me on the bleachers near the end of the video, wearing my new FsRC singlet.

The Eastside 10k Crew Challenge

I’ve written before about my love of running with others, and in particular the Fraser Street Run Club. I’ve also posted about my experiences as an ambassador for the CRS. I’m happy to say that these worlds are colliding in the Eastside 10K Crew Challenge on September 19th!

The Eastside 10K Crew Challenge is encouraging local run crews to compete against each other while raising much-needed funds for Eastside charities. The crew who raises the most money will receive 5 free season’s passes to all 2016 Vancouver CRS races. The crew with the fastest cumulative time will earn an extra $500 donation from CRS to their charity! This year, the FsRC has decided to team up with Watari Counselling & Support Services Society as our partnered charity.

I had a great time this morning pacing at the Vancouver Eastside 10K. Before the run, I ran into several people I knew; despite the relative small size of the run (~1,500 runners), it seemed as though 75% of the local runner community was participating! This was my first time as … Continue reading
