Run Details

Registration is now open at for our 2021 edition of the Thanks For Giving Run!

We’re sincerely hoping that restrictions with respect to the Covid pandemic will ease up by October, and as such, we are planning for a mass start on Saturday, October 9th at 9:30 a.m. (the kids race will start at 9:00).  We are hoping to make a final decision about whether we are having an in-person race by the Labour Day weekend.

 We also have a virtual option so that you can enter our event & run your chosen distance at any location in the world. Please visit our website for further updates during the summer.

Choose from one of 4 events: the 21.1k ½ marathon, the 10 k, the 5 k, or the kids (10 & under).

The fees for the Half marathon are $50, and for the 10k and 5k they will be $40.  The net proceeds of our event will go toward the Winkler Food Cupboard as they directly support those in need of food assistance.  Race Roster adds a processing fee, of course, but we also want you to seriously consider making a further (tax-deductible) donation to us to supplement what we pass on to the Food Cupboard.

So this summer, plan on running Winker’s Thanks For Giving Run, whether it’s at the mass start at the Winkler Arena on October the 9th, or wherever you are (between the dates of September 1 and October 9).  Hope to see you on the 9th!
