Running Crew

Cowichan Valley Running Crew

Need motivation to tie up those laces and hit the road? Come and join the Cowichan Valley Running Crew.

This free running club meets Thursdays, 6 PM, at the shop for group runs. All paces are welcome, and we have a strict no drop policy. Leave your pace worries at home. 

We change up our route monthly, and routes vary in distance up to 10KM. For 10KM route, we always have 5KM and 7–8KM options as well. We don't have fixed pace groups so that the front can go as fast as the front wants to go, and the back can go as fast as the back wants to go. Run/walk intervals will always be facilitated for those that want them!

Since there aren't a lot of street lights or sidewalks in our area, safety must always come first, and we plan routes in areas where the traffic is quiet. Wearing clothing with reflective details, reflective arm bands, or lights is recommended. In the winter, a headlamp or flashlight is a must.

THE PERKS! All Running Crew members in good standing receive 10% off storewide* and when you show your member card at Pizzeria Prima Strada, you can get a free glass of wine, draught beer, or a serving of gelato free with a regular pizza purchase. Hooray for carb loading!

And a huge shout out to our sponsor Limitless Carpentry for keeping us kitted out in awesome crew wear. You take pride in everything you do, and you're the reason we look so good. Thank you!

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email info@cowichanvalleyrunning.com or call the shop at 250.929.7860.

See you Thursday!*
