Flatlanders Road Race 2018
Welcome to the 24th annual Flatlanders Road Race, hosted by the Regina Road Runners Club. The race features a half-marathon, a 10km and a 5km. Walkers are welcome in the 10k and 5k. The races all start and finish on the track at the Canada Games Athletic Complex (Douglas Park Track). For 2018, the race will be held on Saturday, September 29th.
New for 2018 will be a one mile children's race, to be run before the other distances. The Children's race is open for children 5 to 8 years old.
Race start times are staggered to reduce congestion at the start, to bring finishing times closer together, and for safety reasons so that faster 5k and 10k runners don't have to run back against all of the other runners.
The half marathon will start at 9:30, the 10k at 9:45 and the 5k at 9:55. The children's one miler will start at 9 am.
The race is run almost completely on the pathways in Wascana Park. There are KM markers and arrows marking the course, as well as course marshals to direct runners. Water is available at 5 aid stations on the course.
The Flatlanders is an inclusive event for runners of all abilities. Walkers are welcome in the 5k and 10k events. In an effort to keep the cost reasonable, the race shirt is available as an optional purchase when you register.
Race Package Pickup: Will be at the Douglas Park Track on Friday September 28th from noon to 6 pm, and on Race Day morning from 7:30 to 9. As things can be pretty hectic on Saturday morning, we would appreciate as many runners as possible picking up their bibs and shirts on Friday afternoon. And you may pick up race kits for other runners.
This will be our inaugural One Mile Kid's Race, which we hope to include as an annual event. The Kid's race is open to children 5 to 8 years old. The start time will be 9:00 AM
