The Manitoba Marathon has made great strides to increase safety, reduce the traffic congestion and get our participants and spectators to the start line on time.


On Site Parking

Limited on site parking will be available in U-lot U only. Parking passes are available for online purchase with your race registration, at anytime by clicking here.

If you purchase one of these parking passes you must adhere to the parking plan as identified on the pass, map and information provided via email. Vehicle access to the race site is extremely limited on race morning.

You must  have your pass with you. No pass, No parking. This is a great option for many, bring your families or carpool with fellow runners.


Manitoba Hydro Energy for Life Shuttle

We are excited to announce the return of our shuttle service on race day. Shuttles will operate from several locations in close proximity to the University Campus.

Individual wristbands can be purchased during the registration process, or by visiting the online store after you are registered.

Wristbands will be specific to the shuttle location selected. While we can accommodate up to 1000 shuttle riders from each location,  each lot has a finite number of parking spaces. There are two options for purchase; wristbands that include a parking pass, as well as wristbands that are for riders only. Please plan to carpool to the shuttle locations and make your selections accordingly so that we can transport as many participants as possible.

Additional wristbands will be available for purchase at the Fit Expo based on availability.

Wristbands are required to ride the shuttle on race day and will not be available for purchase at the shuttle locations.


Bike valet

A bike check system is offered and staffed by volunteers on race day on the east side of IG field. 

We encourage bicycles and have ample space for those taking active transport to leave their bikes with our secure bike valet service located immediately beside the tailgate area.















To get to your Start Line on time please adhere to the following:

  • All runners are strongly advised to arrive at the University of Manitoba before 6:15 a.m., whether you are a parking pass holder, riding a shuttle, biking or walking/jogging in.
  • Unless otherwise indicated the University of Manitoba is CLOSED to vehicle traffic for the duration of the Manitoba Marathon.
