NOTE: Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Provincial restrictions, and the general realities of hosting a multi-school event, we have made the decision to MOVE this event to La Barrière Park. The larger physical space and course layout will allow for a safer experience for all involved.  We have also had to make the decision to limit the total overall number of entrants per race to 50, and cap the total number of athletes per race from each school at 6.
(This could change as Provincial Health Regulations change)
  

This will obviously result in a much smaller event than usual. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and hope you understand our need for an over abundance of caution. At this time, we obviously don’t know how many schools will be able to participate in the event but we certainly want to do our best to put on a strong race for those who can attend.

Each school must provide one volunteer for this event. Volunteer names must be submitted to Michael at programs@athleticsmanitoba.com prior to the event. Roles will be assigned and distributed via e-mail.
