In September of 2004, the Flying ‘M’ Athletic Club assembled a committee to develop the criteria and selection process for the new George Tanner Scholarship.   In May 2017, Flying ‘M’s head coach passed away.  George left us a legacy of sport, knowledge, dedication, commitment and laughter.


The Scholarship is distributed through the Winnipeg Foundation directly to the educational institution the recipient is attending.  This $400.00 scholarship is awarded annually.


The goal of the Scholarship is to alleviate some of the financial stress of student-athletes who wish to continue their track and field training while attending a post secondary institution.

The 2018 version of the George Tanner Memorial Classic was held on December 1, 2018 at the James Daly Fieldhouse, University of Manitoba in Winnipeg.

This year's event was a huge success with Flying 'M's current and former athletes volunteering to put on a great event for the track and field community in Winnipeg.

Thanks to everyone involved!
