It was a beautiful day for the third annual Regional Race put on by the City of Martensville, the City of Warman and SREDA (Saskatchewan Region Economic Development Association) on Saturday, September 14th. Approximately 109 people participated in the event, which was up from the previous two years. “We had very good sponsor and community support this year that helped grow the event,” Dillon Shewchuk, Community Economic Development Manager said.
This 10km run is a way to encourage people to get active and promote the communities of Martensville and Warman. This year the run started in Warman and ended in Martensville, creating an opportunity for runners to go through both cities to see all the amazing things that they have to offer. Each year, the start and finish lines alternate between the communities. “The purpose of the event was to see our region from a different perspective to show the close vicinity of our communities, appreciate that closeness and to showcase this area to people who may not be really familiar with Martensville/Warman,” Shewchuk explained.
The idea behind this event was born at SREDA, who were looking for a new, creative way to showcase the close proximity of the two communities.
