The 2020 event will see all race distances take runners over and along the Bow river, showcasing Calgary’s best running routes (it’s also a place 2016 Olympian and Calgarian Jess O’Connell loves to run). Additionally, the start and finish line area is located near the confluence of the Bow and Elbow River, which has been a significant gathering place for indigenous peoples for thousands of years.

The design

The 2020 ribbon and medal design for the 50K, marathon and half depicts two iconic Calgary landmarks, the Bow River and the Peace Bridge. These landmarks are familiar to local runners, and those who’ve run the Calgary marathon before. They’re also two of the hottest spots on local runner’s Strava routes. GoodLife Fitness 5K finishers receive a unique medal, that along with featuring the Bow River, highlights downtown Calgary’s cityscape.

If runners have completed multiple events, their 5K medal connects with all other race distance medals to create a Calgary cityscape as seen from the Peace Bridge.

Registration for the event is still open. Runners can visit calgarymarathon.com for more details.
