The Manitoba Marathon has made great strides to increase safety, reduce the traffic congestion and get our participants and spectators to the Start on time.
This year Manitoba Marathon welcomes Prairie Toyota as our proud sponsor of the Prairie Toyota FREE RIDE Park & Ride program. Watch for exciting activation’s at each Park & Ride location – maybe you’ll even receive a FREE RIDE in style courtesy of Prairie Toyota!
Prairie Toyota FREE RIDE Park & Ride!
Simply stated, if you leave your house at 6 a.m. and expect to find a nearby parking spot at one of our Park and Ride lots at 6:30 a.m., you will be waiting in line for a bus well after your race has started.
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 a.m., whether you are biking, walking/jogging in, or taking our Park and Ride services.
- The University of Manitoba is CLOSED to vehicle traffic for the duration of the Manitoba Marathon.
- The Manitoba Marathon has a very successful (Park and Ride) program. A series of buses commutes from designated parking areas near the University, to and from the Start/Finish areas, beginning at 5:30 AM. We strongly recommend that all runners use this service. Please note due to safety reasons strollers are prohibited on the bus. Plan on arriving at your Park & Ride before 6 a.m. to make the 7:00 a.m. Start. Please note: only park in designated areas of your Park & Ride locations; vehicles impeding on local businesses that share the same lot may be at risk for tow. Manitoba Marathon is not responsible for any vehicles that may be towed or ticketed on race day.
We encourage bicycles and have ample space for those taking active transport to leave their bikes with our secure bike valet service located at the North end of Investors Group Field.
Additional information is contained in your Participant Handbook which you will receive when you pick up your runner number.
