Created in 2012 the WFPS Run: Half Marathon, 10k, 5k began with a small idea.
Host a small running event and raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. In that inaugural year, the event saw 1,665 registered runners and raised $25,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The entire committee was humbled by the overwhelming participation and support by the community and dedicated themselves to creating a runner-centric event that was inclusive for all!
Fast forward nine years later and WFPS Run is fortunate to have a volunteer Race Committee of over 20 dedicated community members, hosts over 3,500 runners and 700 volunteers annually, and has raised over $400,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
In our first year at our inaugural event which was held on Saturday, October 20th, we had 1,665 registered runners which resulted in us raising $25,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. We were humbled by the overwhelming participation and support by all runners and volunteers!
As the event continues to grow the committee is forever in awe of the support it receives from the community. We all extend our gratitude and promise to keep working harder to make your event the best of the year.
WFPS RUN is dedicated to creating a memorable event from start to finish. We deliver an experience that ignites and engages the community bringing all levels and abilities together for both runners and volunteers. We engage with our community to identify ways WFPS RUN can give back through supporting local non-profits and charities.
Through our dedication to inclusiveness, commitment to our community and drive for innovation, WFPS RUN is Manitoba’s premiere running event!
We value respect, integrity, honesty, hard work, and passion.

Put your mind at ease on April 1st when you register knowing that WE WILL refund your money if we have to cancel our event due to the ever so fluid pandemic. We did it successfully in 2020 refunding over 900 participants who requested it, and we are fully prepared to do it again in 2021 and do what is in the best interest of the runners and community.
On behalf of myself and the WFPS Race Committee, we would like to extend a warm welcome to new and returning participants and volunteers to the Ninth Annual WFPS Half Marathon, 10k, 5k event in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
