The Royal Road Race is Saskatchewan’s Premier race, providing the unique opportunity to run within Canada’s RCMP Training Academy, Depot Division in Regina. We celebrate Mother’s Day weekend in style!

Titan Automotive and Mercedes-Benz of Regina are returning for their fourth year as Race Presenting Sponsors. In recognition of women on Mother’s Day weekend, we are awarding all 2019 race finishers in the 5km and 10km events with a pair of Hillberg & Berk sparkle ball earrings! The Jaleta Pacers and RCMP encourage you to run the race and honour yourself, or honour a special woman by gifting your finishing prize on Mother’s Day weekend. The earrings feature hand-set crystals with a Hillberg & Berk printed silver cap and are available at the race finish line.

 And to honour those that strive to excel in the sport of running, we have increased our total prize purse to $4000.

 *Registration for the 5km and 10km events includes breakfast buffet and Sparkle ball earrings from Hillberg & Berk.  The Mini-Mountie event registration includes breakfast buffet NOT the Sparkle ball earrings.*

General Information

Race Day is Saturday, May 11, 2019.  Opening ceremonies start at 8:45 a.m. with both the 5 km and 10 km race starting at 9:00 a.m. and the 1 km Mini Mountie Run at 9:05 a.m.

Fees are non-refundable.  Race registrations may not be transferred, given or sold to a third party.  Registrations are not defferable to another year.  Those racing under a false identify are not covered by event insurance and are not eligible for an official race time or any overall or age category awards.

Attach your running number to the front of your shirt/jacket so it is visible at all times. Your timing chip is attached to your race number.  Do not fold your race number.

There is no package pick-up on race day.

We ask that everyone show up early and be diligent with their arrival time to allow for proper screening and parking.

We ask that everyone have their race bib clearly visible and available for inspection upon arrival at the McCarthy Boulevard entrance gate. (we want to verify that the vehicles coming on site are race registrants).

If runners are bringing family or friends we ask that they all be in the same vehicle as much as reasonably possible. If they cannot be in the same vehicle then indicate this to security at the gate. ("my wife is in the car behind me" etc)

Participants are asked to lock their belongings, out of plain view, inside their vehicles.

Please use the McCarthy Boulevard entrance off Dewdney Avenue for the race.  Signage and traffic directors will be at the gate for parking.

Walkers on the course should yield to runners.  If the running/walking path is congested, please stay to the right, allowing runners to pass on your left.

During the race, in the interest of safety, please stay on the side of the road where possible. Remember motorists have the right of way, unless a RCMP officer gives them other directions.

The use of portable headphone devices (iPods, MP3 players) is not permitted.  For your safety, and that of others, you must be aware of your surroundings at all times.  This includes being able to hear verbal warnings from police and course marshals as well as the sounds of traffic or other participants on the course.

There are Paramedics (EMT) cycling along the course during the race.  Water Station will be at the Start/Finish Line.

Course marshals will be wearing distinctive clothing and will be positioned along the course to direct both motorists and participants as necessary.  The course will be marshalled until the last one is done.

Washrooms are located inside the Drill Hall.

Strollers are NOT allowed on the course.  No participation using bicycles, strollers, skateboards or in-line skates will be allowed.  As well as NO PETS.

A digital clock will be positioned so you can see your results as you cross the finish line. Volunteers will assist you after you cross the finish line and direct you into the recovery area.

Brunch buffet will begin at 10:00 a.m. with a short awards ceremony beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Your race/bib number is your entrance for the brunch.  Please ensure that you do not remove it until you enter the brunch.

Race results will be posted on the day following the race.

If you registered for 10km and decided to stop after the 1st 5km loop, your time will not be recorded.  Also if you choose to stop after 5km, please step aside and do not cross the timing mat as the system will not be accurate. Your race time will be listed as DNF (did not finish).

A parent or guardian must meet their child at the finish line upon completion of the Mini Mountie run then proceed directly into the Drill Hall for their medal presentation.  Look for the RCMP Safety Bear mascot near the Drill Hall side entrance located close to the finish line. Children cannot be left unattended.

Mini Mountie medal presentations will take place near the large Canadian flag in the Drill Hall.  Professional photographic services will be available at that time.

675 maximum participants.

Course Map Info

A course map will be included with your race kit.

The course is fast and flat with a 5 km loop run twice for the 10 km distance allowing great viewing opportunities for both participants and spectators. 

The course is laid out entirely within the boundaries of the historic RCMP Academy, Depot Division (commonly known as "Depot").

With a proud heritage of over 100 years, Depot is the only location where the RCMP trains its cadets.
