Will you run or walk for women?

Looking for a fun activity that makes a social impact? Then look no further! Run or walk on behalf of the Women’s Centre in the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon. Race options include a 5km walk or run, 10km, half marathon or full marathon. You can choose to race with a group, or go solo. Everyone is welcome!

How this event supports women:

Leading up to the big race day on June 1, you will be encouraged to get friends, family and colleagues to sponsor your participation. Funds raised through this event will support the Women’s Centre’s Basic Needs program.

There will be prizes!

The Women’s Centre will be giving away prizes to the top fundraisers* (e.g. those who are able to raise the most funds through personal sponsorships). We have secured a very exciting first place prize. Hint: Running or walking for the Women’s Centre gives you wings! Stay tuned for official prize announcements.

*Note: Some Women’s Centre staff will be participating and fundraising in the event but are not eligible to win. To see our staff list, click here.

On race day, you will also receive a medal from the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon for your participation.
