The annual Great Grain Relay is on March 9 this year.  Red River College has been well represented over the past ten years or so and we have several medals to show for it!  This great March fundraiser is in support of Juvenile Diabetes Research, which is a great cause.  We’ll have great weather because it happens indoors at the Max Bell Track at the U of M!  Are you interested in forming a team of 5 runners, or joining in?

  • Date: Saturday, March 9
  • Time: 12:00 noon  – 2 pm
  • Distance: 800m relay – after you do your 800, you hand off.  Once everyone on your team has gone, you are up again!
  • Place: Max Bell track at the U of M  (free parking on Saturdays)
  • Beer garden and lunch after: Beer garden?? Did someone say beer and lunch???
  • Cost per team:  $150.00
