Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! The Forever Young 8K is certified for distance and sanctioned by BC Athletics.

What is the Forever Young Club?

The Richmond Forever Young Running/Walking Club is a group of mainly retired seniors. Our goal is fun and fitness. Our club has now been running for 8 years and we regularly have 25 – 30 members out every Monday and Wednesday morning for a 10K run or a 6K walk. We have 16 different and adventurous routes in Richmond but we occasionally go in to Kerrisdale, False Creek and Stanley Park. We run/walk for an hour and we socialize over coffee for an hour. That’s the fun part!
