Race Information

The Scotiabank Calgary Marathon is, not surprisingly, the crown jewel and main event of the Calgary Marathon Race Weekend. This race, is western Canada's oldest official marathon, and has recently been gaining national recognition winning the title of "best road race in Alberta" a number of times in recent years. 

Calgary Marathon

The marathon usually attracts a field of close to 2,000 runners, but will feel much larger on race day with over 11,000 people typically participating in one of the multiple distance options that race weekend offers.

Expect to run through a number of residential neighbourhoods, giving an interesting community feel to the race. So, if you're looking to tour Calgary... on foot... for just over 42 kilometers, this may be a good way to do it!

Course Information

The marathon course starts and finishes at the same location, following, for the most part, a large loop through the city of Calgary. Expect a somewhat flat course, with a section of gradual elevation building from about the 10km mark until just past 20km. From there runners quickly lose the elevation gained, and follow a lightly undulating course through to the finish.

This course has historically been AIMS certified and used as a Boston qualifier.
