The 2014 Honour Run is a 100 kilometer, un-timed event in which hundreds of participants, including youth Honor Runners and soldiers, run to honour lives lost in pursuit of peace and unity. Each runner sets his/her own personal distance goal. It is not a race.
Members of the general public interested in running with our future generation and soldiers from the North Saskatchewan Regiment are encouraged to participate in the mass start.
Members of the public interested in honouring their own tribute on the run are to register on the Adult Run Page.
All runners participate in a Mass Start at Friendship Park in Saskatoon.
Run starts at 8:30 am.
The entourage will be escorted out of the city by the Saskatoon Police Services.
The first stop is the new Saskatoon Police Services building at the 1 mile mark.
The next stop is along Idywyld Freeway by the footbridge before 51st Ave at the 5 K mark.
Honour Stations (Aid Stations) are set up along the way to provide runners with food, drink and washroom facilities.
Buses will be at each 5 K mark to shuttle runners back to the starting line.
The second starting line is at the Rosthern Visitor's Centre off Highway 11 North.
The second start will occur at 7:00 pm.
Runners may join Back To Batoche Days Festival participants to celebrate Metis culture, languages, music and art.
The next day, 2014 Honour Run participants and sponsors will participate in the unveiling of the Metis Veterans' Monument Ceremony.
