Join me for the West Van Run on March 1, 2015

WestVanRun Group

The West Van Run is a great spring 5km or 10km run on March 1st. It’s timing makes the 5k option a great warmup for the Sun Run, and the 10k an early test for those training for the 1/2 or Full BMO Vancouver marathons. It is also a great race along the scenic West Vancouver Seawall for those looking for a different perspective from the usual Stanley Park routes.

Let’s build a Running Community, NOT a Community Run

running communityOne of the tag lines on the West Van Run is “Let’s build a running community not a community run!“I love this as it connects with my philosophy that “running is a team sport” and Christopher McDougall‘s sentiment that “The reason we race isn’t so much to beat  each other, but to be with each other.”

To promote our running community, West Van Run has asked me to form a team to take part in this year’s run.

  1. I’ve thought about this, but I just don’t think I can spare the money. Love West Van Run though – and nice to meet a fellow Vancouver running blogger!
