Parking & Shuttle Bus Information

There is limited parking at Edworthy Park.

Free Parking & shuttles are available at Market Mall. IMPORTANT: Designated parking area and shuttles run from the NE corner of the mall - at the corner of 40 Ave NW and Shaganappi Trail NW.
Mall Address:  3625 Shaganappi Trail NW, Calgary, AB T3A 0E2

 


The shuttle ride will take approximately 5 minutes. Shuttles will pick up runners at the entrance to the parking lot outside. 

Shuttle pick-up times: 7:30 a.m. – 9 a.m. and will run until 11:30 a.m.  Shuttle pick-up is located at the entrance of the parking lot.

We highly recommend arrival between 7:00 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. to avoid longer wait times at the shuttle pick up.

Tip: Come in groups! When carpooling, drop off runners at Edworthy Park (near Angel’s Cafe) and have the driver park at the offsite parking. 

South Side of Edworthy Park:
We strongly discourage parking at Edworthy Park South Parking lot as it is very limited and there is no alternative parking on the south side of the river.  Parking is not permitted on Edworthy road (leading to the south entrance of the park). Please do not park here.

Virtual Participation Information

 

What do I get with my Virtual registration?

With your Virtual registration, you will receive a Technical T-shirt, Bracelet, our Legendary Swag Bag and FREE Home Delivery of your race kit.


How does a virtual walk/run work?

A virtual walk/run can be completed from anywhere, anytime before or on the in-person event day. You can walk/run your own route at your own pace. Do what you feel comfortable doing. The most important thing is that you are participating to support women’s mental health programs in your community while being active.

The deadline to complete your walk/run and submit your virtual results is June 15, 2024.


Do I need a bib number to participate?

No, you are not required to wear your bib (which will be delivered to you with your Race Kit). However, we encourage you to wear your bib if you're taking pictures and posting on social media!


How do I record my walk/run time?

The Wednesday before the event (June 12) you will receive an email with your timing link where you can submit your time. To track your time, use any of your favorite timing apps. You will have the option to submit your walk/run results through the personalized link that will be emailed to you.


Do I have to walk/run the full distance at one time?

As long as you fully track your walk/run and complete the distance you've registered for before the submission deadline, you are welcome to take breaks or split up your distance over more than one day.


How can I share my accomplishments and photos?
