BC Endurance Project

About the BC Endurance Project

The BC Endurance Project (BCEP) is a select group of high performance distance runners (5,000m to marathon) residing and training in the Vancouver area. The group is supported and funded by BC Athletics, the Canadian Sport Institute, viaSport, Corporate Sponsorship, and the Government of British Columbia.

Mission Statement

The BC Endurance Project strives to develop distance runners (5000m to marathon) to achieve national and international performance standards. The specific goals of the project are to place as many members on BC and Canadian Championship podiums, on Canadian national teams, and to pursue podium performances at Olympic Games, World Championships, Multi-sport International Games, and other international competitions.

Head Coach

Richard Lee is the Head Coach of the BCEP. Richard is from Kincardine, ON and a graduate of Queen’s University in Kingston, ON. Richard coached Sue Lee (Born French) who under his guidance qualified for both the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics and the 1988 Seoul Olympics where she set Canadian records in both her heats as well as in the Final (finishing 8th place) in the 10,000m.

This experience and focus has helped shape the current BCEP roster and since 2008, Richard’s focus has been on coaching post-collegiate athletes, helping them move to the next level of National Team and International Competition. There has been and continues to be great success and development in the group, highlighted by Olympians Dylan Wykes, Natasha Wodak, and Lucas Bruchet and Olympic Qualifier Rachel Cliff.

The main focus of the group is geared largely towards longer distance events - from the 10,000m to the marathon, but Richard’s interest and belief in diversity within a training group keeps the group well rounded from 1500m up through the marathon.

Over the past five years the BCEP has produced:

  • Over 50 BC Championship podium finishes
  • 42 Canadian Championship podium finishes (Achieved by 11 different athletes)
  • 12 Canadian Champions (Achieved by 5 different Athletes)
  • 32 National Team Members (Achieved by 14 different Athletes)
  • 3 Canadian Records
  • 3 Olympians
