Upcoming Events

Van Run Club is a free run group. We design our events to create a fun run experience for our members. We try to find a balance between social easy runs, workouts and run events. We want you to workout and enjoy it. 

We have three Weekly Runs all targeted for a specific aspect of running. For more information check out their pages:

  • Form Focused Runs (LINK) - Each run has a 5 min talk on a different aspect of run form followed by an easy jog.

  • Beats Intervals (LINK) - Speed workout with music and coaching to help you get faster.

  • Social Runs - Just easy social runs with different pace groups.

We also have Quarterly Events to help you push your boundaries and motivate you to get out and be active. For more information check out their pages:

  • Month Challenge (LINK) - Choose your own goal and run with us or by yourself and use the momentum of the group to support you.

  • Time Trial (LINK) - We have a 5K course that we run every three months to help us track our progress and have something to train towards.

    Having proper run form means that you run more efficiently; running faster while saving energy. It also reduces impact on your joints, bones and tendons. Learning any new skill takes time and energy. You may know what to change, but are the changes you think you're making what is actually happening?
