The 9th annual WPS Half Marathon is set to host over 2,500 runners on May 5th, 2013.
Marathon organizers have been putting on the event since 2005 and have raised funds in excess of $700,000.00.
Proceeds go to the Manitoba Division of the Canadian Cancer Society.
Despite adverse whether conditions, past events have exceeded expectations from a runner and organizers point of view. Not only are significant charitable donations raised, the event brings our Community together and offers members of the public a chance to see the “people” behind the badge.
For 2013, race organizers are implementing a two wave start in hopes of dealing with issues regarding congestion; Wave #1 goes at 0800 hrs and will consist of all relay participants and those wishing to challenge for prize money. Wave #2 goes at 0830 hrs and will consist of the remainder of the participants.
Registration forms are available online or at all Running Room locations.
See you at the finish line.
