Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Third Annual Fort Garry Rotary Half Marathon, in support of Winnipeg Harvest. It is our goal every year to have a great race promoting healthy living and raise funds for a worthwhile cause.

This year, the annual event is scheduled for September 21, 2014. In addition to raising funds for the Winnipeg Harvest and other Rotary sponsored community projects, we hope it will provide an opportunity to the runners to test the results of their summer training, try for personal bests and a practice run for those running half or full marathons in the fall and winter.

CAUSE

Harvest is a non-profit, community based organization that is a food distribution and training centre. Our goals are to collect and share surplus food with people who are hungry and to offer training opportunities to help people step up and out of poverty. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate the need for food banks in our community.
