Photos: Forever Young Club 8K Run in Richmond

Runners and joggers aged 55 and older ran 8-kilometers along the Fraser River in Richmond

More than 100 local runners, joggers and walkers tied up their shoelaces and attended the ever-popular Forever Young 8K Run on Sunday morning.

The seventh annual event, solely for people age 55 and over, kicked off at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 12 outside the Richmond Olympic Oval.

Participants attended a pre-race warm-up and ran, jogged or walked along the Fraser River toward Terra Nova Rural Park before turning around and returning to the Oval.

The Richmond-based Forever Young Club is a group of mainly retired seniors with a goal to bring fun and fitness to the community.

According to the event brochure, the event is “a chance for (seniors) to gain well-deserved recognition for their commitment to fitness.”
