The Distance Collective is a recreational running club serving the Vancouver and area run community. The goal of the collective is to provide a group of like minded people the opportunity to improve their form, speed and endurance in a collaborative environment. The Distance Collective is proudly supported by Distance Runwear…East and North Vancouver’s best option for run apparel, footwear, nutrition and hydration.
We are a collective of runners; trail, road, long, short, fast, slow but one thing is common to us all…the desire to improve. The Distance Collective is a focused program designed to improve your understanding of form, speed and endurance. Through a variety of work outs you’ll gain a better understanding of your Running Economy (how well you run) and thus improve your form, your speed and your endurance.
Tuesdays- 7pm @ Memorial South Park – Track workout
Plus Monthly Collective Sessions (special club events brought to you by the brands of Distance Runwear) last Thursday of each month.
If you can run for 30 minutes at any pace you can join the Collective. We are a fun bunch, but we work hard to meet our goals. Our workouts include track intervals, track drills, hill training, form work and tempo runs. All runs start with an easy warm up where the whole group stays together for 10-20mins. Drills are also performed together. The workouts are done in such a way that runners of different abilities can work together and nobody gets left behind. We encourage participation in the many great running events our area has to offer, as part of the Distance Collective.
The Collective is coached by Distance Runwear owner Dave Cressman. Dave is the first Athletics Canada Certified Road Running Instructor and Form Coach.
