2020 registration is now open. Click here.

We’re moving!

After 14 years with our start and finish point at Eau Claire market, we’re on the move. Due to permit regulations and just because it’s time for a change, we’re moving to Repsol Centre. The good folks there are welcoming us with open arms. You’ll find plenty of parking, access to the main concourse including washrooms, gym space for post race awards and food, and a great new race route. Check out the new route.

General information

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 15th 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.

The race is chip timed and all participants in both distances receive a finishers medal, hot post race meal and a tri blend t-shirt. Watch this space for a medal preview in the coming months.

There are age group medals for the top three men and women in each 10 year age group for both the half marathon and the 10 km.

Race package pick up

Race package pick up is at Gord’s Running Store (919 Centre St N) on Saturday, November 7 from 10:30 – 4:30
