WPS Half Marathon



Race Director Message - Fall, 2022

Good Day!

Well, to say the last 20 months have been a challenge would be an understatement. It has been challenging, and life is not quite back to what we hope for yet. Our community and way of life have been damaged. Our thoughts are with you all, whether you have lost a loved one, a business, or are suffering from the stress and anxiety these events have brought on.

We have a great team here, and we have worked constantly over two race-year cycles to be as open, flexible, and understanding as possible.

Our charity, the Canadian Cancer Society, needs us to get back on the horse and get to work!

I am excited to announce that on November 1, 2021, we will launch our registration year! This is a month later than usual, but we wanted to be sure we had a model that would be viable. The month of November will be our regular early-bird period.

We are grateful to the MB Marathon, Rotary Run, and Run Sage Creek, who have successfully had events go off without a hitch. We now have parameters and templates that give us a path. We also understand what MB Health will need to grant us permission-IF required for a May 2022 event.

We will be offering a unique model for 2022. We will have a virtual 5k and Half and live 5K, Half Marathon, and 2 Person Relay!

First, the most apparent condition for registrants in the live event is to be vaccinated and provide proof at the kit pick-up. Of course, if MB Health no longer requires that by May 2022-we will happily comply.

We will also offer no-questions-asked refunds until January 15, 2022. After that date, we have to start ordering supplies for the party! All you have to do is email us, and we will execute the refund via Race Roster. You will NOT get your Race Roster fee back, though.

Those who join us for the live event will select a starting corral when they register. There will be 10-minute windows from 0730-0820 you can select, and you start at your convenience in that window. As another option, even if assigned to a corral, between 0820 and 0900, the start line will be open for you to start when you like! So, you can sleep in!

There are many more details to follow; there are just the basics to try and get you thinking about joining us next May!

One other little tidbit, there will be NO secret gift this year. Instead, those in the Half and Relay will get a race crew neck sweatshirt, and those in the 5k will have the option to upgrade from the shirt to the sweatshirt!

See you May 1!

Nick and the Team
