Tis the Season

MRA Gift Store

Just in time for the holiday season, The Manitoba Runners’ Association has just begun to unveil their new online gift store. Every piece of merchandise is made to order and for that extra touch, purchases can be “personalized” by adding a name.

In order to support local businesses the MRA has sourced most of it’s products from local companies. This way we can deliver some last minute holiday items for the last minute shoppers. All orders online generally take 5 days to deliver some of the customized items require a little longer. It’s best to get your order in on most items by Dec 15th to ensure a timely delivery.
