Let’s Race! Calendar of Events in Calgary Area

Need a tune up race before the big one? Spring is always full of running races. Make sure you try out at least one this spring and earn some bling. It doesn’t have to be a big race, check out your local 5k charity run, or stretch yourself and do a trail race.

Racing seems to bring out the best in every runner.

And if you’re not going to race, volunteer at a race. You’ll love it!

  1. Hiya! I am in Calgary next weekend to watch my daughter compete in the Under 16 volleyball nationals and am taking the opportunity to run the MEC 5K on Saturday morning. My first ‘real’ race. I am super nervous. SUPER. DUPER. Nervous. Do you know the course at all? Any tips or advice?


  2. Those MEC races are amazing. They are so well planned out and organized, I’ve been amazed each time I’ve run them. The race next weekend is around Glenmore Reservoir. The 5k route stays on the north side. This is a 2m wide paved pathway with no hills. At least it feels like no hills – you get to turn around before the steep hill going down to the water level. The map shows a little elevation change but it should be smooth sailing. Here’s a map and elevation profile: http://events.mec.ca/event/25431/mec-calgary-race-three-2015 . You’ll have a view of the lake the whole time, and now that things are greener, you should have a beautiful view. Have a great time.
