Canada Run Club is excited and proud to welcome our newest ambassador, Rob Reid.
Rob is a philanthropist, businessman, father and grandfather with a long history in the running community. He relocated from Calgary to Victoria in 1987 and has become founder, owner and public face of Frontrunners and New Balance stores in Victoria. He also served as the director of the Royal Victoria Marathon for 30 years.
Rob is known for his passion for making a difference in the community and supporting a multitude of cause. He is the board member, founder and sponsor of many local charitable organizations including Every Step Counts, Cool Aid Society and Kenya’s Rift Valley Marathon
Inspired by the efforts of Terry Fox, Rob chairs the board of the Terry Fox Centre to be built in Vancouver as a cancer education research facility and tribute to Terry Fox. He was also the driving force behind the Terry Fox statue in Victoria.
Rob looks forward to meeting fellow CRC members at his stores and at running events! Stay tuned for ambassador events here.
