Race Information

Calgary's Original St. Patrick's Day Road Race. A 10 KM Run or 5 KM Run/ Walk in support of The Canadian Diabetes Association and The Calgary Road Runners.

This run has quickly become 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 racecourse starts and finishes at Central Memorial High School in SW Calgary and loops through the communities of North Glenmore and Lakeview.
