Rules and Regulations

MEC Winnipeg is committed to the standards of fair play at our races. If any participant breaches our rules and regulations, we hold the right to disqualify them from our race.

  • Bib and Chip: Only registered participants wearing their assigned bib numbers and chips will be allowed on the courses. Your bib (worn on the front and visible) tells our course marshals that you have registered for your run and belong on the course.
  • If you cannot run in the race: You cannot transfer your assigned bib and chip to another runner.
  • Every participant must run the whole distance that they are registered in: Any course cutting will be treated as unauthorized short cuts and a major violation of our fair play standards.
  • Start Line: Runners are strongly encourage to seed themselves according to their projected pace. Projected fast pace runners should be at the front and a runner with a slower projected pace or walkers should be near the back.
  • Gun Start: Remember, your bib and chip will give you your real time and if you miss your Gun Start for your distance, any delays would not count toward your finishing time. 

Safety Information

  • All routes are open to public, please be courteous and be aware of cars, dogs, and cyclists.
  • If you are using headphones, please respect other event participants and the general public by keeping your music low and/or leaving one ear free so that you can hear any potential safety information.
  • If you are participating with a stroller, please position yourself at the very back of the pack so that other participants do not have to run and walk around you.
  • Due to liability reasons, dogs are not permitted to run with participants.

Running Etiquette

  • Please share the road. If you are running with a group, please do not run any more than two abreast.
  • If you are a slower paced runner, please stay to the right. If passing, please call out "on your left" to let your fellow participants know you are coming.
  • If you are taking a walk break, please stay to the right. 
  • Water station: If you are stopping, please make sure to have a quick glance over your shoulder to ensure you do not cut someone off behind you.
  • Please do not stop right on the finish line. Please run all the way through as fellow participants might be behind you. 
  • Have fun!
