Harvest Moon Run 2020

Now that the race season that never was is coming to a close, the Regina Road Runners will come together for a relaxing fall, fun run – in the dark!, with social distancing. Walkers are welcome!

The event is on Saturday September 26th – the last event from the RRRC for 2020. There will be a short briefing at 18:45, and the running/walking shall begin at 19:00.  We will gather and run from the outside of the Lumsden Hotel and Steak Pit, 30 2nd Avenue, Lumsden.

The course will be a breath-taking (it could be cold, and yes – there is probably a hill) tour of parts of Lumsden.

This is a fun run to enjoy the company of other runners, reminisce about what you would have done if there had been a race season and enjoy fall in the Qu’Appelle Valley. It isn’t a race and won’t be timed, but it will be fun! Registration is not required and there is no cost.

This is a night race in late September and sunset occurs early. A headlamp or flashlight is required. Reflective clothing is required.

Following the run/walk, everyone is invited to gather (not too close!) at the Lumsden Hotel and Steak Pit for appetizers and beverages.

26th Annual Flatlanders Road Race

https://raceroster.com/events/2020/32455/flatlanders-road-race-2020

Welcome to the 26th edition of the Flatlanders Road Race, hosted by the Regina Road Runners Club. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the 26th edition of the Flatlanders Road Race will be a Virtual Event. A 5 KM, 10 KM, 21.1 KM Half Marathon, 25 KM and a 1 mile Kids event will comprise the 2020 events. You can register as a Runner or Walker in each event.

All participants can complete their race(s) between Sept 26 and Oct 03 2020 and enter their times in Race Roster up to Oct 06 2020. Since the virtual running of events will take place over a week, you could register and run multiple events over the 7 days if you so chose.

Registration Costs: Each event will have a $27 registration fee except the Kid events which will be a $5.

Race Course: Due to the virtual nature of the events, you can complete your event distance on the course of your choosing. Regina Road Runners Club will not require “proof” that the required distance was covered and believe that you will honor your commitment to the event and take pride in your accomplishment.

Medals: In order to have the correct number of medals for all events, we need to order the medals by Sept 01 2020. As such, medals will be provided for all registrants up to Sept 01 2020. For registrants after Sept 01 2020, we will do our best to have enough medals but we cannot guarantee that a medal will be available.

T-Shirts: The race shirt is available as an optional purchase for all events when you register. However for 2020, Kid’s T shirts will not be offered. T shirts will be available for purchase during registration up to Sept 01 2020. After Sept 01 2020, T shirts will no longer be available for purchase.

Results, T Shirts and Medals: The results within your event will be available on line within Race Roster. On Sept 26 2020, we will provide details on how to enter your event time and how to view the event results. We are still working out the logistics regarding pick up of T Shirts and Medals.

Charity: Theo’s Challenge will receive support from the Flatlanders 2020 Event. Theo is a 5 year old boy who suffers from Batten Disease, a rare genetic disease that has impacted many of his physical abilities. Assistance is required to help fund Theo’s treatments that are not covered by health care.

2019 Boot Race Results

The breeze was brisk (I think I saw pets blowing by) but the sun was shining and there was no snow so the race went ahead.   The race course allows spectators to watch most of the race as it unfolds so there was lots of cheering during the heart stopping action.  The race director got lazy this year and limited the number of signs so a couple of runners missed turns but recovered and finished well.

Rob Humphries was left saddened with a large hole in his trophy case after giving up the prize to Marilyn Leask, who won the race handily.  Our only first time Boot Racer ended up in second place.

The race was followed by mini cinnamon buns and drinks as everyone reviewed the highlights of the race and discussed other activities to follow this season.

Pictures to follow.
