About Us


Vancouver Running Company was created by Rob & Becky Smith and born out of a desire to celebrate the beautiful urban and natural environment we all love to run in. We wanted a running company that placed as much importance on post run beers as it did on training hard for personal bests. A brand with style and simplicity that was built on friendships and the stories we create together in this community.


Vancouver Running Co. welcomes Nick Lo as partner. Nick comes from years of building Physio Room into Myodetox's footprint in Vancouver. An avid runner and friend, Nick brings a unique and forward thinking perspective to VRC and the running industry.


Vancouver Running Co. will continue to focus on building a diverse and equitable running community while steering running retail through it's next stages of evolution. Developing running experiences and brand collaborations with some of the best brands and people around.
