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. The race course is well marked with directional and other information signs. There are also racecourse marshals and volunteers all along the course for guidance. These volunteers will be wearing yellow volunteer t-shirts and are easily identifiable.

Introducing the 2nd Annual Gallagher Group sponsored  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!

Half Marathon Description

From the start line near the Duck Pond Shelter at St. Vital Park, 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.

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,


Our primary Project is to supplement the existing vocational programming offered at the Knowles Centre with the aim of providing 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 and these at-risk adolescences lack sufficient skills to cope with the demands of society and 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.
