The Banff Marathon is a marathon, half marathon, and 10k race that takes place in Banff National Park. The event has been described as one of the planet's most incredible and beautiful running experiences and offers runners stunning views along with plenty of natural wildlife to observe.
Runners will receive a finishing medal (for the marathon and half marathon), a commemorative race garment, draw prizes, post-race snacks and of course, a day out running through some incredible scenery.
Think scenic on this one. Runners follow an out and back course that starts and finishes right in Banff. The course is mainly flat with one gradual hill near the halfway point.
