The Fort Garry Rotary Half Marathon and 5K Fun Run is a great race promoting healthy living and raising funds for vocational training for at-risk youth.

The 6th Annual Rotary Half Marathon and 5K Fun Run is Sunday, September 17, 2017. The race starts at 8 am.

In addition to raising funds for community projects, the Half Marathon will provide an opportunity for runners to test the results of their summer training, try for personal bests, practice for other half or full marathons in the fall and winter – and win some great prizes! #rotaryrace4youth

This morning I had the privilege of running the Fort Garry Rotary Half Marathon. Without a shadow of doubt the Fort Garry Half is the most scenic half marathon in Winnipeg and perhaps all of Manitoba. It also has a reputation of the fastest course around town; personal bests are measured in minutes, not seconds.

Michael Bennett,

The race course is certified and is an out and back course, marked with mile markers at every mile and with kilometer markings at 5, 10 and 15 KM marks. From the start line near the Duck Pond Shelter at St. Vital Park, beginning at 8am, runners will run on Parameter Road to the exit gate of the park, turn south on River Road to just before Bishop Grandin, turn right and follow the bike path to the Red River leading to south side of Bishop Grandin. Make the loop to follow the path over the bridge to the west side of the Red River to Darcy Drive and to Thatcher Drive leading to University Crescent, turn left on University Crescent and left again on Sifton Road. Follow Sifton to Saunders, Freedman and turn left on Kings Drive and right to Kilkenny Drive to the Perimeter Highway. At this point cross over to the bike path going west along Cloutier Drive to the turnaround point, make a slight left from the bike path to the left lane of Cloutier Drive and retrace the course back to the park. There are also racecourse marshals and volunteers (in yellow T-shirts) all along the course for guidance.

The 3rd Annual 5K Fun Run will start shortly after the Half Marathon and is 2 Laps (5 Km) around St. Vital Park (Perimeter Road). The Fun Run is open to all ages and we encourage families, friends or groups to participate and join the fun!

Our primary project is to support additional vocational programming through the Knowles Centre. We want to provide graduating students with either the ability to continue their training elsewhere, or to find employment.  Current support for Knowles graduates ends at the age of 18, but these at-risk adolescences lack sufficient skills to become contributing members of society.  Our Painting Vocational Training project aims to break the cycle of abandonment the graduates face and teach them a productive trade.
