The mission of the Vancouver Island Runners’ Association (VIRA) is to promote running on Vancouver Island by hosting and facilitating a very high-quality series of races in the VIRA Vancouver Island Race Series.

In addition, VIRA will facilitate the creation of individual races in the series that:

Encourage participation by athletes of all abilities

Are rewarding for all participants; and

Are accurate and challenging.

VIRA will provide leadership to its membership on matters that affect running on Vancouver Island as per the explicit wishes of the membership.

Membership is open to clubs and events and provides benefits such as event insurance and promotion of member events on the website and through social media.

In 2018 VIRA adopted a new constitution in keeping with the new Societies Act. Read the VIRA Constitution and Bylaws.
