2020 Saskatchewan Marathon

CANCELLED

It is with heavy hearts we advise that the 2020 Saskatchewan Marathon has been cancelled due to increased COVID-19 concerns. It is important for everyone to do all we can to protect our community and we believe that this is the responsible choice for us. The health and safety of our runners, our volunteers, fans, stakeholders, suppliers and the public at large is always our highest priority.

The Saskatchewan Marathon is operated by the Saskatoon Road Runners Association, a non-profit organization led by a volunteer board of directors and supported by more than 400 volunteers. We all share in your disappointment. Our goal is to deliver a fantastic first-class race experience to you each year. It is evident that this is no longer possible on May 31 and we are unable to postpone to a later date in 2020.

If you are registered for the Saskatchewan Marathon this year, we want to recognize your hard work and encourage you to continue being active and healthy during this difficult time. You’ve already paid to run or walk. The SRRA has made a decision to invest in our relationship with you by offering the options below to provide some value for that investment.
