Hear what the 12th Annual Moose Jawg means for the Moose Jaw Health Foundation
The Moose Jawg Charity Road Race is celebrating twelve years of good health, fun and running in the City of Moose Jaw. Our run has helped raise over $64,000 for the Moose Jaw Health Foundation and enriched the lives of all who have attended the event during that time by promoting a healthy lifestyle. All of this could not have been done without you, our Sponsor.

ANYONE registering after Thursday, June 20 at midnight will NOT receive a technical shirt for the 2013 Moose Jawg.
**Unfortunately, every year Moose Jawg pays for shirts that are not claimed and therefore forfeits money that could go to our wonderful charity, The Moose Jaw Health Foundation. This year, we have decided not to forfeit the money to our charity. NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN ON THE REGISTRATION.

About the Moose Jawg Charity Road Race
Moose Jawg Charity Road Race is a 5 km and 10 km race organized and hosted by local volunteers. It is held every Canada Day, July 1, in Moose Jaw’s own beautiful Wakamow Valley.
Runners pay $45.00 to enter and are given a race shirt, a post-race breakfast and a chance to win many draw prizes.
Proceeds for this event go to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation Initiatives. More than $64,000.00 has been raised in eleven years. We have been operating on a zero budget and have relied on revenue from the race and monies donated from several local businesses to cover our costs for advertising, signage, shirts and food.
The idea for the Moose Jawg sprang from a meeting between Dawn Luhning and Ken Dalgarno to organize the Moose Jaw Horizon Running Club. At the time, almost all road races in the province were held in either Regina or Saskatoon. There had been a few attempts to organize a race in Moose Jaw but for whatever reason they failed to generate much interest or participation. We knew that if properly organized, there were enough local runners to sustain a race and if properly marketed, we could attract a good number of the running community from around the province. We met our goals the very first year with 75 runners. Almost half of the participants were from out of town. Our second year entries increased to 125 runners. We continued to grow in our third year with 150 runners with many more watching and cheering from the sidelines. In our fourth year (2005) we exceeded the 200 entries with a very successful 209 registered runners and we have continued to grow. In 2011 we had our best turn out ever with over 600 runners and over 70 participants in the runt run.
The race has attracted runners from as far away as North Carolina, Minnesota, Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario. Also included before the race each year is the “Runt Run" where children under 12 years of age run a small loop under 1km. The Runt Run has proven to be a very entertaining pre-race event. The cost for the children is only $5.00 to participate and every year each child receives a small gift for finishing, goodies, and of course lots of cheers for their efforts.
