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.

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.

KEEP CALM AND RACE VIRTUALLY:

Virtual Race Dates Extended!

VR VIRTUAL EVENTS SPONSORED BY CLIF BAR

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the cancellations and postponements of all live race events, VR PRO introduced an entire calendar full of virtual events and then opened early registration and extended the completion deadline dates for their Virtual Canada Day 5K & NEW 10K, the Virtual Butter Tart 5K & NEW 10K,  and the COVID-19 RUN FOR OUR HOSPITAL 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon. And now, we are excited to announce our three NEW Virtual Remembrance Day Races, or three NEW Virtual Hanukkah Events, as well as our Virtual Santa Events! (All Virtual Race kits include race bib, premium, finishers medal, and more...Everything sent right to you!) 

We are so excited to welcome CLIF Bar as the official sponsor of VR PRO Virtual Races! Registrants will now receive a CLIF Gift Pack valued at $10!

Scroll down for a complete Virtual Race listing. Don’t allow this pandemic to  keep you from achieving your fitness goals or from enjoying the fun of racing!

Now you can safely race with us... wherever you are!

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!

 

Virtual Chilly, Frigid, & Frosty Finishers:

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. We are donating $15.00 of each entry to either Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation in Hamilton, Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation in Burlington, or St. Josephs Health Care Foundation in London. And we have just added Headwaters Health Care Foundation in Orangeville as our latest hospital to benefit from these events!

Because so many runners were requesting even longer virtual events, we added a NEW VIRTUAL HALF MARATHON EVENT!

Each participant receives a beautiful and unique finisher medal, a CLIF gift pack (valued over $10.00), plus a custom imprinted face mask and race bib! FREE Tank Top to half marathon registrants! 5K & 10K participants can purchase a tank top for only $15. Email to purchase: kelly@vrpro.ca

We are currently mailing and delivering virtual race kits. You may run or walk it anytime up until September 30 and then submit your results.

A limited number of spots are available. Please register early!

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 November 28, 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.)


 

3 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. Event participants will complete the challenge by walking or running a 1K 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 8’ is a single 8K virtual race event. Participants in the “Hanukkah 8’ will also receive the beautiful and unique menorah medal and candles.

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!
