The Year of Running Together, Apart

Join the 2020 Run Calgary Virtual Running Festival

Run Calgary has been busy reimagining 2020 in response to the global pandemic. We have shifted from in-person events to virtual races in order to help keep our community safe and healthy, but also moving.

While we have had to adapt our events to an all-virtual platform, we are still setting goals, connecting to celebrate one another and running. We have heard from you that Run Calgary races are a part of your life, so whether this is your first virtual race, or you are a seasoned virtual-veteran, here are some tips to have the best virtual experience ever. These tips were curated by our team and were provided by members of the Run Calgary community.


"I'm really happy you are finding ways to support runners through this chaos - honestly, this is an important target for me and being able to participate, even virtually, has been so helpful.  Thanks for all you are doing!" 

- Caroline M.
