Event Details

Join us for the 9th Annual Gingerbread Run,
and support YWCA Saskatoon!

Run, run, run, as fast as you can! On November 26, join us by running 5km for a great cause!

Brainsport is back with this year's Gingerbread Run! We are excited to be back to an in person event!

For the past 8 years, the team at Brainsport has been hosting the iconic Gingerbread Run - donating the profits to Saskatoon charities. This year's event will start and end at the YWCA Saskatoon.

We are excited to announce that this year, all race profits will go to support the YWCA Saskatoon. The YWCA Saskatoon is a welcoming and vibrant community-based organization that provides preventative and emergent services to women and their families. The YWCA Saskatoon has been a place for community members to find stability, grow together, overcome personal obstacles, and gain a new respect for their abilities and passions. Money raised stays in the province and goes directly towards funding YWCA Saskatoon programs and services.

Stay connected to the community by celebrating your run on social media using the hashtag #gingerbreadrun2022 and tagging the Brainsport instagram @brainsportyxe, and the YWCA Saskatoon instagram @ywca_saskatoon. If you tag us, we can share the love and support to other runners and community members in the city!

Participants will receive an awesome souvenir Gingerbread Run bunnyhug at our package pickup day (details below). Not running in the event, but wanting a souvenir bunnyhug? Not to worry, you can buy a bunnyhug without entering the race for just $40.
