The Great-West Life Super Run is a non-competitive event. Plan for a fun 2.6 mile run with your friends and family on father’s day!

Join 4,000 runners – kids, adults, and seniors alike – in a wonderful taste of the Manitoba Marathon experience, complete with a full refreshment station and the excitement of the Marathon Start and Finish lines. The Great-West Life Super Run starts just after the Marathon, Half, and Relay, so you can root for your friends and family at the start and be in the stands at Investors Group Field to see them finish! Growing every year, look for our wave starts again this year.

The Great-West Life Super Run welcomes strollers and baby joggers but each child must be registered. Please remember to start at the back of your wave as a courtesy (and safety measure) to those around you.

As a souvenir, Great-West Life Super Run participants will receive a special baseball hat on race day! Look out for our wonderful Great-West Life sponsors and volunteers handing out the baseball hats:)

The Winnipeg Free Press 10K and the Great-West Life Super Run are non-competitive events.

The Great-West Life Super Run’s first wave starts at 7:15 am! The following waves leave at 7:17 a.m., 7:19 a.m., and 7:21 a.m.
The question on every Super Runner’s mind, every year, is…what colour baseball caps will Great-West Life volunteers be handing out? Anticipation builds until finally the Super Run waves start on University Crescent, and participants continue around the perimeter of the University of Manitoba campus, passing through the Great-West Life Super Run water station and on to the Finish Line where your ice cold popsicle is waiting for you! Participants will exit the finish line area and be directed to one of the designated “Meet me’ areas, to be reunited with friends and family.
