In order to increase the accessibility of our events and lower our environment footprint, we are helping our participant car pool to all MEC Calgary events this year. With the map below, you can register your ride to the race as well as ask for a ride to race by clicking the "Filter" button on the map.
As with many unique venues, parking is limited. There is street parking in the area as well as a paid parking lot about 10 minute walk from the start site.
We will have a bag check on the race site. Feel free leave a small bag there while you run. Bag check opens with the race site at 7:30am.
Help us keep our races green by bringing your own water bottle. (Compostable cups and on-site recycling and composting will also be provided.)
