Please join our team “Rescue Racers” for the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon 2021. This year you can choose between a virtual run or an in-person run! Join AARCS in the walk/run for homeless animals. With each step, collectively we can make a difference in the lives of animals.

You can also participate by helping our AARCS Rescue Racers raise money for our four-legged friends in need. DONATE NOW!

Set your goal, enjoy the outdoors on your own time between September 1 – 30th or run in person on September 19th. Connect with fellow Rescue Racers, share selfies, ideas of your training, inspire and celebrate one another’s achievements! You can also participate by helping our AARCS Rescue Racers raise money for our four-legged friends in need. 🐶🐱

Scotiabank covers all the fees associated with online fundraising, so 100% of the funds raised will go directly to AARCS!

When:  Virtual Run: September 1 – 30, 2021 OR In-Person Run: September 19, 2021
Location: Your virtual run or walk can be completed anywhere and on any surface (trail, road, treadmill, track, backyard, balcony).
In-Person will be held at Stampede Park starting at 7:30 am

Things to know:

  • Race packages will be ready for pick up the week preceding the event. All participants will be emailed the exact times and date.
  • Choose your distance — you can walk a marathon or walk all the distances (5km, 10km, 25km, 42km).
  • Track your run using RunKeeper. Your results will automatically sync with your Race Roster account and right onto the leaderboard.
  • You may also screen capture any fitness app or watch (Garmin, Strava, Fitbit, etc.) and manually upload your time.
  • Tracking helps runners that want that competitive component but you do NOT have to track your run, just do it for fun and help save lives at the same time!
