Road Closures

The Calgary Marathon is one of Canada’s premier running events and in order to put on event of this caliber, city resources and temporary road closures are a requirement.

Please check back soon for road closure information to ensure your community is aware of the road closures resulting from the race and that we inconvenience you as little as possible. Traffic and safety plans are in place to mitigate impact in the communities we are running through and please contact the Calgary Marathon Society directly at info@calgarymarathon.com  if you have any questions or concerns.

Timing Tag Instructions

Your timing device for the 2020 Calgary Marathon is the Chronotrack B-Tag. It is a single-use, disposable chip that is applied to the back of your race number. In order to receive an accurate time, please ensure your race number is:

  • Clearly worn on the front of your torso
  • Unaltered, and unmodified
  • Pinned in all 4 corners
  • Not covered by your jacket, water bottle, another shirt/sweater
  • Visible as you cross the start and finish lines

Do not fold or bend your race number as it will damage the timing chip.

All participants will receive a race bib and timing chip at registration. Your bib must be pinned (unmodified and fully visible) to the front of your shirt and displayed throughout the entire race. Participants without a bib will be asked to leave the course and will not be timed or receive a finishing medal.
