Race Details

  • The 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 IG Field to see them finish!
  • 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.
  • If participating with a friend or school and have a different bib color/start time, don’t worry this is about having fun – run together!

Race Swag

  • Great-West Life Super Run participants will receive a finisher medal and a special baseball hat on race day!

Check out the Start area map in our Participant Handbook to view exactly where our wonderful sponsors will be handing out the hats on race morning.

Brief Course Tour

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.
