FitFirst Run Club

Join us—Beginners welcome!

The FitFirst Run Club supports runners and walkers of all levels while promoting a healthy lifestyle through weekly runs and special events. Watching our community grow since 2013, we're so proud of all of our members who are striving to stay active, healthy, and be positive members of the community.

The FitFirst Run Club also fundraises to provide food, warm clothing, and footwear for Vancouver's Downtown Eastside every December.

If you’re looking to join a welcoming, fun, and positive community, hop over to our FitFirst Run Club's Facebook page to learn how you can join in on the fun!

  • Group runs occur Sundays & Wednesdays. Home base is the FitFIrst Footwear retail store. 

Shoe Bank Donation Program

In 2017, FitFirst donated over 1,000 pairs of lightly worn shoes around the Lower Mainland and beyond. These shoes found new life with those with limited resources for proper footwear—including young athletes in the Burnaby school district, members of the Downtown Eastside community, and people in Africa, among others.

Do you have a group who could benefit from the Shoe Bank Program? Let us know, we’d love to collaborate. Email us at
