Weather Cooperates for Annual Regional Race

by Jocelyn Ottenbreit

The Annual Regional Race put on by the City of Martensville and the City of Warman was held on Saturday, September 25th with 100 people registered for the event, and 70 in attendance.

Since 2017, the two cities have come together to help bring awareness to the diverse communities of Warman and Martensville, as well as encourage people to get active and promote the two communities. To get more people involved this year, they offered both a 5km and 10km race option along with the option of riding bikes.

Each year, they alternate between the communities. This year the race started in Martensville at the North Ridge Community Centre and ended in Warman at Oasis Park.

To help get people prepared for the event, and to gear them up to learn how to start running or help with nervousness about joining a race, the City of Martensville created a Running Club as well which started in September.

Jamie McColloch, Recreation Program Co-Ordinator II would like to thank their sponsors; OK Tire in Warman, Culligan, Martensville Co-op Gas Bar, Buy-Low Foods in Warman,

Pet Valu in Martensville, the Saskatchewan Rush, and the Saskatoon Blades, and Rochelle from Soul Power for leading the warmup.

“The Regional Race was a great success, and we are excited for next year’s race! This year we used the Regional Race as a fundraising event for KidSport and because of the generosity of our racers and participants, we were able to raise over $2200 for KidSport which was amazing! This will go a long way in getting more kids and families in programs and sport in Martensville, Warman, and the surrounding area,” said McCulloch.
