Elite Information.

Run Calgary has a limited number of registrations available for high performance athletes who meet the qualifying standards. Please note, because of border restrictions and capacity limits for the 2023 in-person race, the elite program will be open to Canadian athletes only. The program will be limited to elite bibs and corral and will not include hospitality, home-stay program or cash prizing.
