Race Information for Flatlanders 2014

Race Package Pick Up
The race package pick up will be at the Italian Club (2148 Connaught St.) on Friday Oct 3rd from 12 Noon to 6 PM. (Note this is a change from previous years.)
Also it will be at the Start/Finish line at Canada Games Athletic Park onSaturday  Oct 4th from 8 AM to 9 AM.
Race Start Times

The Half Marathon will start at 9:30 AM.
The 10 K will start at 9:45 AM.
The 5 K will start at 9:55 AM.
The staggered start times allows for less congestion at the start and also this will not make the faster 5K and 10 K runners have to run back against all of the runners.
The parking lot at the Canada Games Athletic Park is shared with Liebel field. It will be crowded as there are football games on at the same time. You can also park on Assiniboine Ave. and Park St. just off the road on the grass.
No Bag Drop
We do not provide a Bag Drop service. We also do not want bags left unattended at the Start/Finish line. Leave your belongings in your car.
Water Stations
There are 5 water stations on the course. They are approximately 2 Km apart.
One station may provide Gatorade.
Signs & Course Marshalls
There will be KM signs and arrow signs marking the course. As well we will have 24 course marshalls to direct you. These are all volunteers, thank them as you pass them. 
Enjoy the 20th Flatlanders Race.

  1. I have a quick question. Is there any way to switch from the half marathon to the 10k? I had planned on switching but wanted to confirm with a friend and so when I went to switch yesterday after work, registration had closed. I understand there is a cost involved and have no troubles with that. I just wasn’t sure if that was possible. I’d really appreciate it if I could (and my friend of course). Thanks in advance for any information.
