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

First-Ever Virtual Race a Huge Success!

‘Virtual Canada Day Races’

With iRun Santa Races in Hamilton and Burlington, as well as the Virtual iRun Santa Event, Santa was spotted just about everywhere this holiday season!

Check out some of the great pics from runners and walkers who completed the iRun Santa Virtual Race by visiting the iRun Santa Virtual Race Gallery.

 

Santa Was Virtually Everywhere in 2019!...

The first-ever Aqua at Plaza 88 Virtual Santa Race was a great success! Not only did we have individuals, families, and groups holding their own Virtual Santa Races, the Burnaby Running Room arranged a group run on December 15 from their store to Aqua at Place 88.

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.

 

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!

LOCKDOWN RACE: In support of the fight against COVID in India

India is undergoing a modern-day humanitarian catastrophe, in which basic human care is simply not being met due to critical shortage of medical equipment and supplies. The need is now and the need is urgent. People are dying due to the relentless spread of COVID-19, the subsequent lack of oxygen, exacerbated by the inability to monitor and control health.

Register for the Lockdown Race and help us raise funds to purchase lifesaving medical supplies to help with the fight of COVID-19 in India. Choose from two different distance options - 5KM and 10KM. There is also a kids 1KM event. Run or walk your distance of choice anytime between May 11 and August 31. Participate on your own or with people from your household. This race is part of the very popular VR PRO series of virtual races.

This race is priced at just $25 and includes shipping and handling. (A mandatory donation of $5 will be added to each race entry)

We are engaging in fundraising and awareness activities locally and internationally to help raise funds towards assisting those in desperate need. We have connected with local organizers (doctors and volunteers) to procure and distribute relief equipment, supplies and other such critical requirements with a goal of servicing between 50 to 100 villages.
