It is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to delay the relaunch of the I Love Regina Run until 2021.

As we continue to respond to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, the City of Regina and Run Regina have made the decision that it is not in the best interest of runners, volunteers or the broader community to move forward for this year.

“This run was intended to be a fun, active celebration of our city and its people,” said Regina Mayor Michael Fougere. “It is clear that we will not be able to carry out the event while observing proper social distancing protocols and the limits on public gatherings.”

While a date for 2021 has not yet been scheduled, registrants will receive direct communication from Run Regina about options for transferring their registration to a later Run Regina event in 2020.

“The race community across Canada is dealing with the difficult realities presented by COVID-19,” said Shawn Weimer, Race Director for Run Regina. “We are confident Regina runners will stay active during this trying time while maintaining proper social distancing and be ready to join us for the relaunched I Love Regina Run in 2021.”

Donations made through the registration process will be provided to race partner UnderstandUs, a Regina-based non-profit organization that creates awareness campaigns to spark positive conversations about mental health.
