Run clubs to join in Vancouver

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      One of the biggest appeals of running is that it can be done on its own, but what if you’re looking to be a bit more social?

      While TikTok has claimed that run clubs are the best way to date, whether you’re single and looking or not, they’re a great way to connect with your community. Here are a few of the best in Vancouver that are free to join.


      As the name suggests, Slowpokes is a run club where any pace is perfect. This club meets three times a week to promote alternative socializing. Making new friends is encouraged!

      When: Tuesdays at 6pm at Run As You Are (three-kilometre and five-kilometre options); Wednesdays at Nemesis Coffee in North Vancouver (five-kilometre women-identifying only); and Saturdays at Juice Truck in Mount Pleasant (five-kilometre)

      Kin Culture

      Taking their indoor training outside, the crew at Kin Culture currently offers a weekly run club. What makes this one unique is that it offers three types of runs every week, allowing you to choose which type best suits you: a walk, a leisurely five-kilometre run, or a tempo run if you are looking to amp up your speed.

      When: Tuesdays at 6pm at Kin Culture (walk, five-kilometre, and tempo options)

      Flight Crew

      Flight Crew
      is a great run club for those looking to take their road running to the trails. Powered by Nike Running, Flight Crew offers weekly runs for those looking to go the distance, plus a monthly trail run for anyone looking to challenge themselves even further.

      When: Tuesdays at 6:15pm at Run as You Are (five-kilometre and nine-kilometre options), plus a monthly trail run

      Monday Run Club

      If you want to kick off your week with a run, Monday Run Club is the community for you. Meeting every Monday at Kou Studios, this meetup includes a dynamic warm-up and cool-down stretch. Did we mention that there are refreshments at the end?

      When: Mondays at 5:30pm at Kou Studios (spicy six-kilometre, chill six-kilometre, and classic eight-kilometre options)

      November Project

      Are you looking to tackle hills? The November Project offers two types of runs—hills and flats—for early-bird runners. This would be the best type of workout if you want to feel accomplished before most people are even awake.

      When: Wednesdays at 6:29am at the top of Queen Elizabeth Park (workout); Fridays at 5:59am, various meeting spots (five-kilometre, alternating weekly between hills and flats)
