Message from the Race Director

Founder+Race Director - Jonathan Torchia

On behalf of myself and the WFPS Race Committee, we would like to extend a warm welcome to new and returning participants and volunteers to the Ninth Annual WFPS Half Marathon, 10k, 5k event in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Over the last eight years this event has grown to become one of the premiere running events, not only in Winnipeg, but in Canada. In 2017, WFPS Run was recognized by Running Canada as “one of Canada’s top-21 half-marathons” This would not have been possible without the support of our runners, volunteers and sponsors.

In 2019 we experienced a devastating cancellation, due to a severe storm that made running conditions unsafe and impossible for our runners and volunteers. We vowed to come back bigger and stronger in 2020!

In 2020, we battle an even bigger issue – COVID -19.  But our committee remains dedicated to continuous planning, constant adaption, communication to our runners and volunteers and working towards creating a safe event for all.  We know we cannot control everything, but our committee is devoted to planning our event for as long as we are allowed.

As we move forward to our 2020 event please follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for breaking news and giveaways! We are always making announcements and giving away FREE stuff, hey who does not love free stuff?

Looking forward to crossing all your paths over the months to come!

See you all on RACE DAY!
