So what does a Virtual NCPR look like?
Registration: Participants will still be required to register online here. We’ve set a flat $25 fee for all adult participants, and $15 for youth (age 16 or less).
Fundraising to support our community: When you register, you will be provided with the opportunity to raise monies online for Bruce House. We would encourage you to do this! We know this has been a difficult time for everyone, and Bruce House is no exception. By pursuing additional fundraising efforts, you are helping out one of the most beloved organizations in the National Capital LGBTQ2S community at a time when it needs your help. And, if you raise $200 or more, you will get a free registration to the 2021 NCPR!
Run/Walk and Post Your time: During the week of August 21-30, you will need to run a 5km route, or walk a 2.5km route. When you do, record your time on your smartphone or watch. You’ll be asked to post your time online, through the ‘It’s Your Race’ platform, so that you can share it with everyone! (Information on how to post will be sent separately). If you are running a 5km, you have another option. In honour of our 5th anniversary, during the month of August, you can run 5, 5km runs. Record the time for each of the 5 runs,and post your best time!
Dress the Part: The NCPR is a great opportunity to show us how fabulous you can be. As in previous years, we’d encourage you to dress in your most colourful, Pride-tastic outfits when you go for your Run/Walk. When you do, take a photo, and we’ll ask you to share it online (details to follow). Our judges will choose the best costume, and the top 3 winners will receive a prize!
“Out to Run” Program: We’re pleased to announce that the “Out to Run” program will once again be offered by the Ottawa Frontrunners. The program will start July 7, and will provide training to participants with the ultimate goal that they complete a 5km Pride Run in August. There’s no additional cost to participate. If you or anyone you know is interested, please contact Marcel Forget at [email protected], and he will send you details.
