Race Course:

The 5k and 10k are straightforward “out and back” races to turnarounds.The 10k route takes the underpass under Broad Street and continues on the bike path to a point near the legislature..

The Kids 1 mile race is not shown, but basically starts on the track shown in the upper right inset, goes out the east gate from the track area, and loops around the cricket pitch visible to the right of the track area.

The Half- Marathon follows the same route as the 5 and 10k, and continues on the path along the lakeshore to the flower garden area north of the Legislature. Then there is a short “out and back” south on Lakeshore Drive and Memorial Drive to a turnaround roughly in front of the Walter Scott building. The course then continues on the bike path clockwise around the west end of Wascana Lake back to Broad Street. Then south on the sidewalk and bike path to the underpass, then back under Broad Street.

OK – here it gets a bit tricky (we call it Confusion Corner) but there will be course marshals there to direct. On the first loop, you will head north on the sidewalk on the east side of Broad St. to Wascana Drive, then east on the bike path to a point just past the Science Centre where a course marshal will turn you around. You retrace the route back to the Broad St. underpass, go under Broad Street again, and follow the same clockwise route around the lake, including the out and back on Memorial Drive. When you get back to the Broad Street underpass, you go under Broad Street and continue back to the Start/Finish area on the bike path. (The same route you started on). You only do the loop to the Science Centre once.

Race Package Pick-up: At the Canada Games Athletic Complex (Douglas Park Track) on Friday, September 30th from 12:00 Noon – 6:00 pm or on race day, 7:15 – 8:45 am.

Results: The results within your event will be available on line within Race Roster within a week after the race.
