Course Information

Looking to increase your distance or speed this year.  Our Train to Run 10K clinic starting in May, could be exactly what you need. 



  • 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.
  • Strollers: The goal at our events is to keep families active, so strollers are welcome on all of courses in 2016 except the trail run. 
  • Headphones: We recommend only using only one earbud if you choose to run with headphones in, as the course is open to traffic, and other runners may need to communicate with you.
  • 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.
  • First Aid on Site:  We have Odyssey Medical in partnership with WINSAR joining us  at the MEC Race Series 2016.  They will be touring the course on their mobile first aid unit, and will have two first responders at the finish line.  Ready to assist those who may be in distress.  If you are in distress, please alert our nearest road marshal, who will contact Odyssey to come to your assistance immediately.

All MEC Winnipeg Races and clinics are non-transferable & non-refundable. Race details may be subject to change.
