Islendingadagurinn 10 Mile Road Race
The Islendingadagurinn Road Race is a yearly 10 mile road race put on by the Flying 'M' Athletic Club to raise funds for competitive opportunities for our athletes.
A 1 mile fun run is also organized for those who wish to participate, but do not want to run the full 10 miles.
The Islendingadagurinn 10 mile race is the flattest, fastest, point to point course in Manitoba. Race day registration and the start line is in Winnipeg Beach. The course travels north along Hwy #9 to Gimli, finishing at Gimli Pavilion Park, at the heart of the Icelandic Festival. Participants are encouraged to arrange their own transportation to and from the starting and finishing points. Gimli is located 1 hour (appox. 100km) north of Winnipeg on Hwy #9. The course will close at 10:30am and participants expecting to take longer than 2.5 hours are encouraged to start earlier and should provide their own timer and aid vehicle. Children under the age of 12 years are discouraged from running the 10 mile.
