Don’t need a gym workout and just need some extra motivation to run? There are lots of running clubs in our city and some of them are free! You can expect to receive tons of encouragement and support and meet other runners with similar goals than yours.
The running room
One of the the most popular running gear store in Vancity, this is the most flexible option. They have many locations you can go to on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm and Sundays at 8:30 am.
These guys are the ones that pace the BMO marathon every year, they know what they're doing!
Mountain equipment Co-op
With a couple locations in Vancouver, MEC also gives you many options to choose from. Check out this calendar and look for the “MEC run crew” events.
These are my top four options for free workouts and there are even more out there for your to find!
My biggest tip for these types of workout is to commit to at least 3. This will give you the chance to get to know some of the other regulars and get to try out the workouts/runs a bit.
Also bring your own water bottle!
Enjoy the free sweat!
