9:45 a.m. – 10 & 15 km
10:00 a.m. – 5 km
Stanley Park, Calgary, AB
In honour of our friend who collapsed while running this race in 2019, the stroller and dog friendly 5 km race is now named the Greg Kuhl Memorial 5km. The 5 km will start 15 minutes after the 10 & 15 km to allow the 10 & 15 km runners to complete the first loop before congesting it with strollers and dogs. Dogs on leash only please.
Come “run the bridges” with us. The start and finish at Stanley Park utilizes pathways in the Stanley Park, Sandy Beach, River Park area. This allows a unique route which will take advantage of the post flood bridges over the Elbow River. The 5 km route will cross one bridge, the 10 km will cross two and the 15 km will cross all three bridges.
There is free parking in and around the park. Your entry fee includes a tri-blend t-shirt, finishers medal, post race lunch with an assortment of Mr. Sub sandwiches and Old Dutch chips, $5.00 beer and all of the activities for the kids.
The kids run is open to all ages and wee ones can run with mom and/or dad if you like. There is no charge for parents to run with their kids in the kids race.
There are medals for the top three finishers in each 10 year age group. In the 5km there will also be medals for the top three 13 & under and 14 – 18 age groups.
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 (stroller and dog friendly), 10km, or try the unique 15km distance.
Race package pick up is at Gord’s Running Store (919 Centre St NW) on Saturday, April 18 from 10:30 a.m – 4:30 p.m. If you’re also doing Spring Trio Trail, you’ll be able to pick up both packages on this day.
Check out our Spring Trio Trail race (learn more on our Spring Trio Trail page). Tackle the pathway version from Stanley Park then the trail version from Sandy Beach. We’ll have some super swanky finishers medals that will go together to make an even cooler medal if you do both races! Watch for those to be revealed early in the new year. People who do both races will also receive a commemorative swag item.
