Bottomlands Park, just north of Telus Spark, Calgary.
There are plenty of ways to get to the race. The central location makes transit, cycling or carpooling a great option.
If you choose to drive, we ask race participants use the ZOO PARKING LOT for the event. There is a cost to park here. We suggest downloading the ParkPlus APP prior to the event and paying through the app as the ticket machines are on South side of the parking lot (and you will head north for the race)
Help us keep our races green by bringing your own water bottle. (Compostable cups and on-site recycling and composting will also be provided.)
Know someone who wants to come cheer you on and give out high-fives? Volunteering with the MEC events team is a blast. Find out more
We’ll have live unofficial live race results at http://results.blitzevents.ca/. Official standings will be posted on the Blitz Evetns site within two business days of the event. Be sure to check back!
We’ll be giving out medals to the top three male and female finishers in each distance category (no age categories awards).
