2023 Virtual Fun Run Series

Welcome to PGRR’s 3rd annual Virtual Fun Run Series!

Our first Virtual Fun Run Series in 2021 did more than make the best of a challenging race season – it inspired us all.  We had 243 people from around the region, across the province, and even a few from the other side of the country join us virtually for nine events between May and October.

We thought that was a wrap on our fun runs, but you told us otherwise!!  Your reasons for wanting the virtual series to continue are as unique as you…and we listened.  Enjoy.  Once again, we look forward cheering you on and connecting with you, as you take on the 2023 VFRS.

How it works:

  1. Sign up for a PGRR Full Membership to participate in the 2023 Virtual Fun Run Series.  The $125 registration fee includes:
    • Ten virtual events from March through to November
    • PGRR’s 2023 club t-shirt and a Finisher’s medal
    • BC Athletics’ Liability and Sport Injury/Accident Insurance
    • Participation in our weekly run groups
    • Discounted entry into the Labour Day Classic
    • AND – should you choose to do so – you can come out to any of our in-person races for FREE!
  2. You will receive a reminder email from VFRS Race Director Jelisa Mailhiot before the Challenge Week begins
    • Challenge Weeks will begin the week before our in-person event
    • Distance options for each virtual fun run will match the distances for the in-person races
    • Just like last year, the fun runs are for you to do YOUR way!  You choose:
      • if you run, jog, or walk the distance 
      • if you want to run it all at once, or over the course of the week
      • if you follow the actual race route – map routes are available on our race pages – or a path of your own choosing
  3. Submit your results by the end of the Challenge Week, using the form at the bottom of this page

In addition to the nine Challenge Weeks that coincide with PGRR’s races and events, the 2023 VFRS will have a special one day virtual event – the 11k on Remembrance Day – to coincide with a community run organized by Prince George resident, Derk Grooten, to commemorate veterans.
