Shift Creative Solutions is a local website design company with a passion for all things technology. We were really early into explaining how we hoped this fun run series would give city residents a much-needed ‘something to do’ as we continue to navigate Covid restrictions, when Creative Director, Luke Hutchison, said he was in! Shift Creative has agreed to be a major sponsor of the Prince George Road Runners for the next several years – revamping our website and providing us with the tech support we need to be ‘here’ for you! Luke is looking forward to the inspiring posts from participants on our Facebook page as you tackle each event.

Alpine Creative offers a range of creative solutions in graphic design, social media marketing, and web design. Proudly based in Prince George, Jordan Conway and his team are heavily inspired by the region they serve, as they look to elevate your business. Alpine Creative was instrumental in coming up with the graphics for PGRR’s new race, the Centennial Relay, in 2019 and quickly jumped on-board to design the promotional material for our 2021 Virtual Fun Run Series.
AscenTech Solutions Inc. is Northern BC’s leader in software development and managed IT services, serving the healthcare, natural resources, and post-secondary sectors. Earlier this year, AscenTech established the Chad Staley Memorial Athletic Foundation to honour former Prince George Spruce King, Chad Staley, who passed away in March, 2020. The foundation will be focused on sport and mental health, as it works to provide financial resources and developmental experiences to youth who need a little extra help to excel – Chad always wanted to help ‘the little guys’. PGRR is grateful to AscenTech for their donation of an Apple iPad, which some lucky participant in our Virtual Fun Run Series will win in our grand prize draw in October!

Owners/Artists, Thomas Torraville and Shyla Jago, bring all ideas for personalized wood & steel designs to life. Their store in the Hart Shopping Centre is a gallery of amazing artwork – from that one-of-a-kind address sign to custom designed bed frames. Thomas was kind enough to prepare a laser-engraved sample of a very Prince George wooden medal for the 2021 VFRS and, from there, agreed to become an event sponsor…we’re excited to unveil, at a later date, what he’s created for some lucky draw winners.
Stride and Glide Sports is Northern BC’s running and cross-country skiing tech shop – they’re focused on helping you find the right gear for your needs.

The Prince George Road Runners want to give a HUGE shout out to Tiani Trucking for its generous support of this season’s event. It is the willingness of local businesses like Tiani Trucking to ‘give back’ that makes Prince George such a rich, vibrant community. Many thanks.
Ritual Coffeeworks is located in downtown Prince George at the corner of 3rd Avenue and George Street. Featuring specialty coffee and delicious pastries, this cafe quickly became a favourite spot to kick off our monthly Sunday morning runs in the fall of 2018. They’ve been missing us and we’ve been missing them – we look forward to when we’re able to host the Sunday morning coffee run once again. In the meantime, Ritual is hooking us up with a bag of finely roasted coffee beans for one lucky winner after each Fun Run.
