In its seven seasons of running, The WFPS Run has never been called off due to a weather concern. With last weeks storm damaging snow, and many downed trees and power lines along the race course The City of Winnipeg has recommended we cancel the event and we have followed their recommendation.
Please trust that the WFPS Run Race Committee have tried everything within our power to make the 8th Annual WFPS Run take place.
 “Safety is our first priority for our participants and volunteers”, states Race Director, Jonathan Torchia. “We have been working very close with the City of Winnipeg since the storm hit last week. While this decision was not an easy one to make, we know we have to do what’s best for our community.”
WFPS Run was created to support The Heart and Stroke Foundation and the community and we will still be donating all proceeds to the foundation. We still encourage everyone to make a donation as Heart and Stroke is still the ultimate beneficiary.
Again, I want to reiterate how sorry we are for this unforeseen circumstance.
You need to know how fully committed we are to you and your experience.
We love our runners. We love our volunteers. We love our community.
We will be back stronger and better then ever in year 9!
