Warm up after winter with your choice of distance! There is nothing like the first race of the season to get rid of the winter blues. Here is your chance to get started early with a warm up race of 5km or 10km, or try the unique 15km distance.
The race starts and finish on St. Patrick’s Island. We’re partnering again with Calgary Rotary Club and Johnsonville meats who will host a post race BBQ for all participants and your families! And bring some cash. The Village Brewery truck will be on hand to quench your post race thirst. $5.00 for a beer.
All participants also receive a gender specific t-shirt, finishers medal and post race BBQ.We have great prizes for the top three finishers in each distance in each 10 year age grouping. First place winners will receive a gift certificate for a complimentary personal training consult values at $250.00 from The Athlete Factory. Second place will receive a gift certificate from Hello Fresh and third place will receive a Village Brewery tour and tasting for two.

Parking is available in the public parking lots at the south zoo entrance but there are limited spots available . Approach the area from the north via Memorial Drive eastbound. There is no driving access from 9th Ave/12th St SE due to construction. You can find additional parking in the Rouge parking lot or the East Village, both just a short walk from the race start. Please click here for a map showing parking, race start/finish and the location of all of the post race festivities.
We’ve added some new fun with the Spring Trio Trail race (learn more on our Spring Trio Trail page). Tackle the urban version then the trail version and we’ll have some super swanky finishers medals that will go together to make an even cooler medal if you do both races! Plus, everybody who does both races will receive a “Spring Trio double header” trucker cap.
