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

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 is proud to announce three new virtual race events...

The Remembrance Day Races are three Virtual Running & Walking Events to Benefit the Juno Beach Centre, Canada’s Second World War Museum and Cultural Centre located in Normandy, France.

There is a race distance for everyone and each distance was selected for its historical significance relating to D-Day and Juno Beach.

Choose from the StrongPoint 1500 - named for the German Stützpunkt (translated ‘strongpoint’) and the 1500 metre stretch of beach taken by the Royal Winnipeg Rifles, the 1st Hussars (6th Canadian Armoured Regiment), and the 6th Field Company, Royal Canadian Engineers on D-Day. Or choose to run or walk the Juno Beach 8K - named for an 8-kilometre stretch of sand the Canadians stormed featuring coastal villages fortified into German strongholds, code-named ‘JUNO’. Or run the Remembrance 21.1K - dedicated to the approximately 21,000 total number of troops who landed on Juno Beach on D-Day. We offer a half-marathon (which is 21.1 kilometres long), in honour of those troops.

Register now for one of these three virtual race distances and receive a race kit including a beautiful, oversized, commemorative medal (pictured at right), along with an official keepsake race bib, an imprinted neck gaitor or mask, a Remembrance Day Poppy, and a beautifully printed Juno Beach D-Day souvenir map, and more! 

With public Remembrance Day Events being canceled, these race events are the prefect way for you and you family to remember our fallen heroes as you support an organization dedicated to preserving the history our nation’s contributions on D-Day.

You can run or walk the event distance of your choice anytime between September 1 and December 31, 2020.

$10 from each entry will go to support the Juno Beach Centre honouring those brave men and the sacrifices they made. (Click here to visit the Remembrance Day Races page for complete event details.)


 

VR VIRTUAL EVENTS GALLERY & RESULTS -

4 new virtual Hanukkah Races...and you don’t have to be Jewish to run or walk these events!

There really is an event for everyone - regardless of age or ability!

The ‘Hanukkah Challenge’ is a unique virtual event - or rather 8 days of unique virtual events. Everyone who registers will receive a beautiful stand-up menorah medal and candles just like the one shown below. It is one of the most unique medals ever offered and one every runner or walker will want to add to their collection! You can actually light the candles - 1 candle for each night of Hanukkah! Registrants also receive the beautiful and practical imprinted buff shown being worn as a scarf in the image below. The Hanukkah Challenge buff can also be worn as a face covering or neck gaiter, headband, hat, as well as many other ways.

Event participants will complete the challenge by walking or running 1 km each day for 8 days. After each 1K is completed, one of the candles provided with the race kit can be placed in the menorah and lit. By the end of the eighth day, all eight candles in the menorah will be lit!

This virtual event will be especially fun for children!

The ‘Hanukkah 5K’ is an event for those who prefer to run or walk the traditional 5 km distance. Participants in the “Hanukkah 5K’ will receive the beautiful and unique menorah medal (as shown below), all candles, and the Hanukkah buff.

The ‘Hanukkah 8’ is a single 8K virtual race event. Participants in the “Hanukkah 8’ will also receive the beautiful menorah medal (see below) along with all of the candles, and the buff.

The ‘Hanukkah Super 8K Challenge’ is for those runners or walkers looking for a more challenging virtual experience. To successfully complete this event, participants must run or walk an 8K Every Day For 8 Days! Those who accept this challenge will be rewarded with a beautiful Star of David ring - like the one shown at right - to wear to your Hanukkah dinner or just to show off your accomplishments to your family and friends!

Now you can do a 1K, or 1K every day for 8 days, a 5K or an 8K, or an 8K every day for 8 days!

So many great choices - so many ways to celebrate the season!
