Who We Are

The Vancouver Falcons Athletics Club is a not-for-profit, member-led running club that was formed in 1987 to offer members weekly coached workouts in a supportive yet challenging training environment. Over 30 years later, the club continues to thrive and offers challenging weekly training sessions in a rewarding and friendly atmosphere.

With a full annual membership, VFAC members are able to attend as many weekly training sessions as they wish. Currently, coached group workouts are offered twice weekly and are led by coach Kevin O’Connor. In addition to these scheduled sessions, members often meet up informally to run on other days, particularly for Sunday long runs.

It’s not all work though! The club members often gather after workouts at various coffee and eating establishments to socialize. Club meetings are held approximately every three months to discuss club news, issues, and upcoming events. Meetings also include time for teammates to catch up with one another while enjoying delicious food and refreshments. There are numerous other social activities including the annual end of year prize-giving dinner.

VFAC also hosts the
Summerfast 10k Road Race, part of the BC Athletics Lower Mainland Road Race Series and a VFAC Summer Track Series. The club also enters teams in various relay competitions in B.C., Alberta and Oregon.

COVID-19 Disclaimer: During this time, the club continues to offer coached group workouts and intra-club races, time trials, and other club challenges. COVID-19 health and safety protocols are strictly in place for all group workouts and in-person club activities. Club meetings are being held regularly via Zoom or other online platforms.
