Fort McMurray Half Marathon early bird registration extended until June 30, 2016

The organizing committee of the Fort McMurray Half Marathon is pleased to announce early bird registration for the fourth annual community half marathon event will be extended until June 30. The half marathon will take place as scheduled this year on Sunday, September 18. The Fort McMurray Half Marathon is a partnership between the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) and the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC).

“The Fort McMurray Half Marathon has become an annual tradition in the community,” said Kelsey Stefanizyn, Fort McMurray Half Marathon Organizing Committee Event Chair and RRC Senior Manager of Sales and Events. “The challenges in our region this spring meant that marathon participants may not have had the opportunity to take advantage of early bird registration, so we chose to extend this registration until the end of June to ensure they have this option available to them.”

The Fort McMurray Half Marathon includes a Half Marathon, 10 km, 5 km and 3 km road races and a Kids Fun Run presented by Inter Pipeline. Early Bird registration fees are as follows: 3km $10.00, 5km $20.00, 10km $45.00 and Half Marathon $70.00. Early Bird registration will be available until June 30, after which time regular registration fees will apply. The Kids Fun Run presented by Inter Pipeline remains free of charge to participants. The annual Terry Fox Run also takes place on September 18 along the same route (details to follow in coming months).

Online Early Bird registration is available now at Race package pickup for participants in the Fort McMurray Half Marathon will take place during the week of September 10-17. Race packages can be picked up at the Shell Place Box Office at MacDonald Island Park.

More details on the Fort McMurray Half Marathon including route will be released in the coming weeks.
