Sun Run Training Clinic - Learn to Run 10k

The LTR10K clinic is designed for new runners. Each workout begins with a warm up that includes a 5-10-minute walk and dynamic stretches. The program focuses on timed run and walk intervals that gradually increase on a weekly basis. This clinic is perfect for anyone looking for a supportive environment. LEARN MORE.

Our Excellent Location

Rackets and Runners is the perfect place to start your run. We are surrounded by quiet neighbourhoods with wide sidewalks. Many city parks are close by, including beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park, which allows us to utilize varied terrain for hill workouts and speed training. We're a very social club and often go for a beverage or snack after our workout.  Several times per year, we meet at alternative locations for destination runs.

Our Running Community

The Oak Street Runners are an important link to the community.  We're involved in many events that include participating and cheering-on at various road runs from the Vancouver Sun Run to the Boston Marathon.  We also volunteer for local causes, including our Shoe Renu Clinic, holiday toy drives for less privileged families and neighbourhood clean-ups.

Oak Street Runners are led by Coaches Liz and Tim plus a core group of leaders who provide guidance and a warm welcome to new members.
