This program is part of Manitoba’s 150th Anniversary Celebration, offered by the Manitoba Runners’ Association (MRA) and funded by the Manitoba 150 Host Committee Inc. and the Celebrate 150 Program. The purpose of this program is to engage people from all walks of life throughout the Province of Manitoba in walking, running or wheeling for their physical and mental well-being. No special equipment is required and if they wish, participants can organize their own local events in order to share the uniqueness of their community with others. Contact Kathy Wiens at the MRA office for more information.
