VR PRO Races Are Sanctioned By Athletics Ontario And Must Follow Their Policies.

Since the start of the pandemic, VR PRO has made the health and safety of the running community our top priority. From keeping runners motivated through virtual races to hosting safe curb-side race kit pickups, we have been working hard to keep you safe, motivated, and healthy.

COVID-19 has had a large impact on our community and it still continues to pose a threat to the health and safety of our runners. As we begin to return to in-person races and events we want to do our part to help keep the community and the cities we operate in safe.

Given the steady supply of vaccines available in Ontario, VR PRO has made the decision to make vaccines mandatory for participation in our in-person races -meaning that in order to participate in our live races, you must be fully vaccinated. This will allow us to host safer in-person events and help stop the spread of COVID-19.

If you are not comfortable with getting the vaccine, or if you are not sure about participating in an in-person event we will continue to have a virtual option available for all of our races.

Thank you for your understanding and for doing your part to keep our running community safe.

- The VR PRO Team
