The Regina Road Runners Club Flatlanders Road Race is an annual event featuring half-marathon, 10km, and 5km distances. The event starts and finishes on the trace at the Canada Games Athletic Park. Race day is Saturday, September 29, 2018 at the Canada Games Athletic Complex (Douglas Park Track) Assiniboine Avenue.
NEW this year is the Kids 1 Mile Race starting at 9:00 am before the start of the ½ marathon starting at 9:30 am.
Package pick-up is at the Canada Games Athletic Complex (Douglas Park Track) on Friday, September 28th from 12:00 noon – 6:00 pm or on race day, 7:30 – 9:00am.
Race start times are staggered to reduce congestion at the start, to bring finishing times closer together, and for safety reasons so that faster 5 km and 10 km runners don’t have to run back against all of the other runners.
The race is run almost completely on the pathway within Wascana Park, with a few short pieces run on roadways within the park. The course is well marked with arrows and Km signs, as well as course marshals stationed at important intersections. Water is provided on the course at 5 stations.
The Flatlanders Road Race is an inclusive event for runners of all abilities. Walkers are welcome in the 5 km and 10 km events. The Regina Road Runners Club strives to keep registration fee reasonable by making the commemorative t-shirt an option when registering.
A portion of the proceeds from the 2018 Flatlanders Road Race will go towards playground structures in North Central Regina in cooperation with Sacred Heart Community School and their School Community Council.
