Because you care about Alzheimer’s. And Calgary. Are you in?
And just think...
Join us for the 29th Annual Investors Group Alzheimer Walk & Run this Thanksgiving Sunday.
5 km walk, 5 km run or 10 km run.
Beautiful Bowness Park is one of Calgary's inner city gems, with access to multiple single track trail connections. The race begins in a large group picnic area beside the Bow River, with access to playgrounds, picnic shelters, creeks and the river. This is a wonderful location for our finale, so bring a blanket or your lawn chairs and stay a while.
What is Ekiden?
Unfamiliar with the term? Then you are likely unfamiliar with the ancient Japanese system of mail delivery. Couriers would run from station to station in a task called Ekiden.
Begun nine years ago as a way of encouraging runners to stay active over the busy Holiday Season, the Strides Run Streak has quickly turned into one of our most anticipated events of the year. Come Streaking with us! It's pretty simple and actually involves keeping your clothes on. Register (for free) on the Strides Facebook page (HERE) and join us as we burn off Holiday calories and fight the winter blues by running at least 1 mile per day (or longer), every day in December. Not on Facebook?
Join over 1000 of your best running friends for Calgary's first big race of the year! The Calgary Roadrunners started this race 31 years ago and it quickly became a favourite among local runners, as it gave them an opportunity to test their post-winter fitness level. Supporting the Calgary Roadrunners and the Canadian Diabetes Foundation, the race course starts and finishes at Central Memorial High School in SW Calgary and loops through the communities of North Glenmore and Lakeview.
