Heartbeets Run Club

Get it? Heartbeets? We’re the Vancouver run club powered by plants! More about us…

We love running on the seawall and in forests, four-legged friends are always welcome and we loooove sipping on green smoothies as a group post-run.

Excited to announce our second run date! 

Since our first run was on a weekend, we wanted to offer a run date for those who are tied up on Saturdays and Sundays. We also wanted to plan a morning run for all you morning people and make sure it’s early enough for those of you who have to go to work!

The forest is so magical in the early morning hours — you will not regret joining!! And we’re so excited to have our good friends Genieve Burley and Deanne Schweitzer leading the run. Because the forest is so vast with so many intersecting trails, we will have Genieve and the front and Deanne at the rear…but we still want to be extra careful not to lose anyone. For this reason, we’re suggesting that slightly more experienced runners join in. If you’re unsure about your pace, you can test it on your next run using Strava or Map My Run app.

Here are all the details:

When: Thursday, July 27th at 6:30am (6:40am departure)
Where: UBC Trails
Starting point: 33rd and Camosun
Parking: It’s a neighbourhood so lots of parking on the street
Distance: ~8km
Pace: ~5.45-6 minutes per km


There will be complimentary wheatgrass shots provided by Living Produce Aisle, slices of the new To Die For Banana Bread and an optional gathering at TurF in Kits (2041 W 4th Ave) — their house almond walnut milk lattes are some of my favourite in town! I’ve met such cool through run clubs in the past — people who have become friends and running partners. The hope is that on these runs you’ll connect with kindred spirits, too. It’s all about connecting and community.

Let me know if you plan to join! Or just show up Email me if you have any questions. If you don’t have a ride or if you have extra seats in your car for a carpool: erin@itstodiefor.ca
