Race Information

Race Kit Pick Up
Friday October 5th: 4pm to 8pm
Saturday October 6th: 10am to 2pm

Running Room, Unit #400B, 1615 Regent Avenue West, Winnipeg, MB R2C 5C6, Ph: (204) 777-1122

Please note there will be no race day kit pickup.

Your race kit may be picked up by a friend as long as they have a copy of your email confirmation. Ask them to forward it to you and show it to us (on your phone is fine, no need to print) at kit pick up.

Chip Timing
3K, 5K, and 10K routes are chip timed. What does that mean? You will receive a small, reusable timer with your race kit that we will ask for you to give back at the end of the race. There will be instructions included for how to attach it to your shoe. It’s important that you wear it as described so the timing mats can record your start and end times.

The 1K route is a fun run and is not chip timed.

Bag Check
If you need a safe place to stash a small backpack or bag with dry clothes you may do so at our bag check. We will mark your bag with a small tag to match your bib number. Keep your bib number on after your race because we’ll need it to match it to your bag! Run Sage Creek is not responsible for loss or damage, so please don’t include valuables in your checked bag.

Water Stations
There is one water station on the course ~2 km from the start, and one at the finish line. As 10K participants will run past the finish line as they do the second half of their course we ask that runners who have finished their distance access the water station from the recovery area and keep the course clear for those still running. Please bring a refillable water bottle to reduce waste at the finish line.

Parking
Do you live in Sage Creek? Please leave your car at home and walk to the start line at École Sage Creek School to minimize traffic in the area. If you are driving in for the race, and you know someone in the neighbourhood, make arrangements to park in their driveway. Give yourself ample time to get to the starting line! Start times are 8:00 a.m. for 1K, and 8:30 a.m. for 3K, 5K, and 10K. If you are coming in for the 3K, 5K, or 10K please considering arriving in time to cheer on the 1K participants!

If you must drive, please obey all parking signs, be considerate of residents, and note the following:

  • Do not park on side streets on the race route (route maps here)
  • Do not park in school parking lots; they will be blocked off and used for the starting corral, sponsors access for loading/unloading, and volunteer parking.
  • Street parking is available along Sage Creek Boulevard, and Des Hivernants Boulevard (even though the race routes are here, runners will be on the sidewalk so parking is okay).
  • Lot parking is available at the Qualico parking lot at 1 Dr David Friesen Drive.

Medals

Medals
The first 300 registered participants received a finisher medal. Because we don't want to end up with unused medals and needlessly waste money that will be going back the the school, the first 300 people to register will be guaranteed to receive a finisher medal at the finish line. Any registrants after the 300 cutoff will still of course be welcome to run/walk, but may not receive a medal at the finish line.

In the event that any registered participant within the 300 cut-off does not pick up their race kit or attend the event, or chooses not to receive their medal, the unclaimed medals will be distributed to the next registered participants in the order registered.
