The Victoria International Running Society (VIRS) is a not-for-profit society that presents athletics events and supports the sport of running in Greater Victoria. The VIRS promotes road and cross-country running, track and field events, as well as recreational activities such as jogging and walking for health and fitness.

Over the past 20 years, VIRS has hosted many events and programs in Victoria for athletes of all abilities. These programs include the TC 10K, Learn to Run Clinics, Run with the Stars, Senior National Track and Field Competitions including the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Trials. 100% of the funds generated through our events are channeled back into the Victoria community to promote the development of the sport, from supporting our developing and elite athletes to encouraging growth of the sport at the grass roots and school levels.
