We all know that the running season doesn’t end when the snow flies, but it seems like races do! This is your opportunity to get one final race in before everyone retreats to their treadmills.
Be There Races presents the 18th annual Last Chance Half Marathon. Not up for a half marathon in November? Or just want a gentler distance? We introduced a 10km in 2019 which became very popular. The 10 km route will be on the same pathways as the half marathon with an earlier turn around point.
In 2021 we moved the start/finish location to the North Glenmore Park Community Centre and it worked really well. A beautiful, albeit tough, course which we will use again. We utilize pathways from the community centre, around Rockyview hospital and along the reservoir. Please see the route maps for details. Your entry fee includes a t-shirt, finishers medal, post race BBQ from the Notorious P.I.G. food truck and a Tool Shed beer. Yup, all included!
We do have access to indoor space at the community centre. Washrooms are also inside the community centre building. We won’t have enough space for everybody to be inside at once so we’ll also have a tent set up outside depending on the weather.
Food and beer
The Notorious P.I.G. food truck (from Tool Shed Brewery) will be on site to provide a post race meal for all of our runners (included in your entry fee) . We’ll also have Tool Shed beer!
We will have awards for the top three men and women in each 10 year age group. Stride’s Running Store will be there with some awesome draw prizes as well.
Package pick up
Will be at Strides Marda Loop (3566 Garrison Gate SW) on Saturday, November 11 from 10:30 – 4:00. Because it worked so well during Covid restrictions, we are going to continue with signing up for a package pick up time to reduce congestion and waiting. You can pick up for other people, just sign up for appropriate number of spots. For example, if you’re picking up for four people, take four spots within the time window. Registration for package pick up will begin one week before the race.
