We have some great draw prizes lined up, including two $50 gift cards for Hunniford Gardens!  At this time, we’d like to give a HUGE shout out to IRL Supplies and TDB Consultants for their Diamond Level sponsorship of PGRR’s Virtual Fun Run Series.  Their generous donations will go towards supporting other local businesses over the course of the series.

All finishers will be eligible for the event draw prizes and will have one entry into our grand prize draw in October.

While we can’t run together at this time, we’re looking forward to connecting with you via social media.  Join us on Facebook @Prince George Road Runners Club, on Instagram @pg_roadrunners, and join our Strava group @PG RoadRunners.

Post some pics or a video from your Mother’s Day 5k – we can’t wait to cheer you on!
