Challenge Weeks

PGRR’s 2021 Virtual Fun Run Series features eight challenge weeks, beginning in May and ending in October.  

We’ve scheduled the fun runs to coincide with when we’d normally be holding a race in a year without pandemic restrictions.

Participants in the VFRS will have one week – from midnight Sunday to 11:59pm the following Saturday – to complete the distance of their choosing for the specific run.

The Challenge Weeks are as follows:

May 9-15                   Mother’s Day 5km

May 23-29                Hurt’n Bear 5km, 10km, or Hagen’s Half 21.1km

June 13-20                Beat the Bugs 5km or 10km

July 4-10                   Blue Spruce 5km or 10km

August 22-29           Masich Mile 1 mile (fast or fun) or 5km

September 5-12        Labour Day Classic 5km, 8.5 mile or 17 mile

October 3-9             Centennial Relay 5km, 10km, or 30km

October 17-23          Joe Kelly Memorial Run 30min, 1hr, or 2hr

Participants will receive an email reminder prior to the start of each virtual challenge.  Click here for to download the Fun Run schedule.

After completing a fun run, we’ll get you to send a photo of your watch face or screenshot of an app showing your distance to the Race Director at  We will post a Finishers’ Board on our Facebook group page, but that’s optional – just let us know if you’d prefer not to be listed.

All participants submitting their results will have their name entered into the event prize draw. Complete all eight fun runs and have eight entries into our Grand prize draw in October for the chance to win one of two 2022 PGRR Season Memberships, a unique, custom design from Northern Hart Designs, or an iPad generously donated by AscenTech Solutions Inc.!
