  • Click on the “Transfer” button on the right-hand side of the page. If you are switching from live to virtual, you can pick up your package at the Race Kit Pick up at Prairieland Park on May 27 (10AM – 5PM) or request to have it shipped by clicking on the “Store” button on the registration page.
  • Fill in the registration as usual then “Submit Order” to finish the transfer.

Note: You cannot transfer your registration to another person. 

4. WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY 2022 RACE KIT?

Race Kit Pick-up will happen on May 27 at Prairieland Park between 10 AM – 5 PM. If you are running the LIVE EVENT, you must pick up your package on that date, or get a friend of family member to pick it up for you.

If you are running the virtual event, you may pick up your package on May 27 at Prairieland Park (as above) or choose to have your package mailed to you by selecting the option when you register. If you missed that and wish you have your package mailed to you, go back to the registration page  and click on the STORE button on the right hand side. There is an additional charge for mailing. Your package will be mailed out starting June 1. Please note that the shipping time may take longer for participants living outside of Canada.

5. CAN I WALK INSTEAD OF RUNNING?

YES! So many participants have taken up walking, speed walking, pole walking, etc. so we want to allow for you to complete in longer distances and achieve higher goals!  This way, your results are compared to others who are walking the events just like yourself! There are options for a walking event for each distance except for the live 42.2K distance. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENTERED THE WALK EVENT IF THAT IS YOUR INTENTION.

6. WALKING YOUR RACE?

If you enter the walking event, you MUST walk the enter time – you cannot run for any portion of the race. If you think you’ll be running at all, you must enter the running event. The walking and running course are the same, so all walkers will start at the back of the pack.

7. FOR VIRTUAL PARTICIPANTS – WILL THE COURSE BE PRE-SET OR CAN I MAKE ONE UP?

This is YOUR race! You can run on a treadmill or choose your own route for the virtual event. You can create fun loops, set-up your own fuel/water station in your yard and tell your neighbours so they can cheer you on from their porches! Please practice social distancing and follow these virtual race tips!

8. WILL THERE BE RACE RESULTS FOR THE VIRTUAL EVENT?

Yes! Our timing partner, Race Roster, is set-up to receive virtual race results starting May 28. You can use the ASICS® RunKeeper tracking app, running watch or GPS device to record your time.

Upload instructions will be emailed to you after you register, and your results will be uploaded to your Race Roster dashboard.

9. HOW CAN I PERSONALIZE MY MEDAL?

iTAB is an engraved plaque with your Name and Finish Time and fits perfectly onto your 2023 Saskatchewan Virtual Marathon ribbon.

It is a great way to celebrate your achievement. Your personalized iTab will be mailed directly to you within 30 days of the race.

10. WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

Entry fees are non-refundable under all circumstances. That means that once we receive and accept your entry, you will not receive a refund for any reason, and you will not be able to defer your entry to another race.
