Scotiabank Calgary Marathon
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.
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!
