***Join PGRR’s 2021 Virtual Fun Run Series***
The Prince George Road Runners will not be offering memberships for the 2021 season. Instead, we’ve come up with a unique, flexible, and inclusive program for the coming season that we believe will be a huge draw for the ENTIRE community, as we continue to navigate Covid-19 restrictions.
Our Virtual Fun Run Series is designed to motivate people of all ages and abilities to get moving in a way that works for them, AND meets all Provincial Health Orders. We hope it gives our well-established running friends an opportunity to challenge themselves to run a personal best, but we also want to encourage those new to running or just getting active to tackle the runs at their own pace.
The 2021 VFRS will feature eight virtual runs, starting with our Mother’s Day Run in May and ending with our Joe Kelly Memorial Run in October. Participants will have one week to complete the designated distance – either alone or with those in their bubble – and the flexibility to choose:
- · When (time of day/day of week)
- · Where (inside on a treadmill/through their neighbourhood/on a local trail)
- · Their pace (walk/jog/run…race for a personal best or just run for fun!)
- · Their distance (5km/10km/21.1km…even one 30km)
- · AND whether they complete it all at once, or over several days
Registration for the entire series is just $70 for individuals and $150 for families (that’s two adults and dependent children) and includes a Finisher’s t-shirt, a unique PGRR medal, and the chance to win prizes over the course of the six months.
Participants will have their name entered into a prize draw for every fun run they complete, along with the chance to have up to eight entries in the Grand Prize draw in October for an iPad!
May 9-15 Mother’s Day 5km
May 23-29 Hurt’n Bear 5km, 10km, or Hagen’s Half

Participants will receive email reminder prior to the start of each challenge week with information on how to submit results – a photo/screenshot of a watch/running app/etc will be accepted as proof of completion. A Finishers’ Board will be posted on our Facebook group page after every fun run, but having your name and/or time listed is optional.
PGRR’s 2021 Virtual Fun Run Series is sanctioned by BC Athletics. The entry fee is non-refundable and non-transferable between participants. Registration for the series will remain open until October 17th, but only those registered by September 15th will receive the t-shirt and medal.
Online registration will open on Friday, March 26, 2021.
