Course Information to be Announced
We are currently in discussions with Assiniboine Park regarding use of either the new 5K/10K course or the course we have used in previous years. As soon as course details have been finalized, we will post the official information on here.
Walkers and new runners are very welcome. The course closes at 10:30am.
- Open Course: Road races at Assiniboine Park are not closed to traffic, which means you will be sharing the road with fellow runners and vehicles alike. We have marshals at major intersections and signage alerting drivers that a race is in progress.
- Headphones: We recommend running music free, as our course is open to public & vehicles during the race. If you must run with your favourite tunes, please do so with just one earbud in. This will allow you to hear and ensure those around you can enjoy the peaceful nature of the course.
- Safety: For your safety, WINSAR in conjunction with Odyssey Medical will be on site. Event staff & volunteers will be wearing safety vests for easy identification. Each marshal station has a First Aid Kit, and the ability to contact Odyssey if you are in distress. If you are injured and would like medical assistance, speak to your nearest marshal, who will call Winsar to come to your assistance.
- Chip Timing:
- Please pin your bib to the front of your chest and pin your chip on your right hip. We recycle all of our chips for future use, so please be sure to place your chip in the bin after the finish line.
- Washrooms: There are two sets of washrooms available for use at the Conservatory, and we have brought in two portable toilets which will be located just outside of the Conservatory to ease congestion during peak use.
- Canine Friends: We love dogs, but they are absolutely not allowed to participate in our races. If you bring your furry friend out to the race site, they must be supervised on leash by a non-participant at all times and cannot join you in any indoor facilities or on the actual course.
All MEC Winnipeg Races and clinics are non-transferable & non-refundable. Race details may be subject to change.
