Electric Donkey 5k race seeks glow runners

Downtown Winnipeg – Downtown’s biggest street party is officially kicking off its fifth year on Broadway in 10 days! The street will be closed and downtown will be open for family fun and partying for everyone!

With over 20 food trucks participating in Food Truck Wars, Kid’s Zone, Farmers’ and Artisan’s Markets, ManyFest Afterhours parties at five downtown hotspots featuring alumni of DJ Mama Cutsworth’s DJ Academy for All Women, and a Ciclovia route spanning from Kildonan Park through downtown and all the way to Assiniboine Park there are surely many activities for anyone to enjoy!

The Electric Donkey Run starts at 8PM Saturday, September 12 at The Forks, and travels 5km towards the finish line at the ManyFest site, where the after party takes place. They are seeking runners to join this giant, glowing, roaming party! Full registration details are available at

“The Electric Donkey Run is such a fun addition to ManyFest,” says Stefano Grande, Executive Director of the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ. “The runners in their glowing outfits make their way through downtown and into the festival site, lighting up Broadway and creating a truly festive atmosphere!”
