VR PRO was thrilled to introduce their first-ever Virtual Race with the 2019 GGS LAW CANADA DAY 5K. Those who could not be with us on race day were still able to take part in this exciting virtual event! Registered participants received a race bib, T-shirt, and a beautiful finishers medal! The event sold out right away as running groups and families held their own Virtual Canada Day 5K Races (just like the one held at the Oshawa Running Room Store pictured at right with some of their participants). We invite you to register for one of the new VR PRO Virtual Race Events and race with us - wherever you are!http://vrpro.ca/events/Canada_Day_5K.html

VR PRO’s First-Ever Virtual Race Event Is Back!

Last year’s Virtual Butter Tart Festival Race Event sold out almost immediately after registration opened. The response to this virtual race was so overwhelming, VR PRO not only offering this event again, but opened registration early due to all of the race cancellations caused by the coronavirus. The Virtual Butter Tart 5K & NEW Virtual 10K may be run and time between July 1 and August 30. Registration includes a T-shirt, Medal, Race Bib, and a Butter Tart all sent directly to you! #runfortarts

For now, there will be only virtual 2020 Butter Tart Festival 5K, 10K, and 1K Races.


Virtual Butter Tart Race Returns For 2020:

No Other Finish Is As Sweet!

When the Virtual Butter Tart 5K event sold out right away, we added spots to accommodate the demand. Those additional spots also sold out right away because so many people wanted to take part in this unique event.

We’ve received so many great pics and stories from runners and walkers who completed their Virtual Race, we started a gallery to show some of the results.


Virtual Racers Take Their Sweet Time!

When race events everywhere began to cancel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, VR PRO decided to extend the deadline for the 2020 Virtual Chilly Half Marathon, Virtual Frigid 10K, and Virtual Frosty 5K. Many runners who had already completed one of the virtual races decided to attempt another virtual race distance. Others who had run in one of the live events on March 1 were happy to now have a Virtual Race option so they could practice social distancing and still enjoy racing!

VR PRO & Race Roster Team Up To Provide The Ultimate Virtual Event Experience!

We were asked by a few of our Chilly Half runners if we would do a run for the local hospital. That is why the COVID-19 Virtual Run For Our Hospital event was created.

And we have just added Headwaters Health Care Foundation in Orangeville as our latest hospital to benefit from these events!
