Time running out for early bird rate for Foodfare - WPS Half Marathon

Time is running out to sign up for the Food Fare WPS Half Marathon at the discounted early bird rate.

Registration for the 2018 edition of this annual road race opened on Oct. 1. And if you act soon, you'll be able to sign up at the early bird rate, which ends on Oct. 31.

The cost to enter the individual half marathon remains at $78.75 until the end of this month. The rate jumps to $89.25 on Nov. 1 - a savings of $10.50.

Likewise, the two-person relay cost is $157.50 in October, and jumps to $178.50. That's a team savings of $21.

There's also the increasingly popular five kilometer race option - the rate will soon jump from $52.50 to $57.75, which is an increase of $5.50.

The regular rates will remain in effect until March 12. That's when the fees jump to $99.75 for the half marathon, $199.50 for the two-person relay, and $63 for the five kilometer race. Those rates will remain in place until May. 4.

The actual race takes place on Sunday, May 6, 2018, starting and ending in scenic Assiniboine Park.

Taking part in the Food Fare WPS Half Marathon isn't just a way to stay active. All money raised from this event is donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. Last year approximately 2,900 participants helped raise nearly $190,000.
