Relay Team Packages

Please designate ONE team member to pickup your team’s package. The team captain will receive a confirmation email on Thursday prior to the race with the team bib#.  Please ensure they know the exact TEAM NAME and all team members are aware of who is picking up the package. This package contains: timing bib belt, all 5 bibs, 5 participant handbooks, pins etc.


– Runner numbers/kits will NOT be mailed out to entrants. “Out of town” participants may pick up their packages Saturday June 17th at the INVESTORS GROUP ATHLETIC CENTRE until 6 pm. (Chip check is only available until 5 pm.)

– Relay team packages will not be given out to teams who have not fully completed their online registration before June 12th, 2018.

Getting Your Runner Number Kit on Time

I am planning to arrive in Winnipeg on Saturday, just before the race. Will I be able to pick up my race packet in time?
Packet pickup will be available for “out of town” participants until 6:00 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. (Note chip check ends at 5 pm.) We do not offer race-day number pickup, and we do not mail packets. If you can’t get to the Expo on time, check out the next item, and plan ahead!

Can a friend pick my number up for me?
Yes. Your friend will be required to either have your registration confirmation or will have to look up your bib # and fill in a special pink kit sign out card prior to entering the Expo floor.
The Manitoba Marathon keeps records of these pick-ups and will not take responsibility for race packets that go astray, after they have been picked up.
