About Lions Gate Road Runners

Short History

Our club, the first in Vancouver to be dedicated to the promotion of long-distance running, was started in 1971 and has been an integral part of the Vancouver running community ever since. We established many major local runs, including the Vancouver marathon, Haney to Harrison relay and James Cunningham Seawall Race.


We currently manage three annual races open to all runners. We also organize club runs for our club members from time to time. These are relaxed, social weekend runs of various distances and at different locations including Burnaby Lake, Buntzen Lake or the seawall. We often end the run with a brunch or cup of coffee at a nearby restaurant. We also meet for a regular Thursday evening workout at the Point Grey School all-weather track.


Our club currently consists of about 80 members, about 70% men and 30% women. We have runners of all abilities, from young and adult beginners to elite level seniors and master's runners who are among the top-ranked in Canada. We always welcome runners of all abilities and ages into our club and we currently have members aged from under 19 to over 70.
