The Vision of the Banff Marathon is to offer a professional, safe, and world-class experience for the participant, sponsor, volunteer, and spectator – all in a race venue carefully selected to showcase the stunning beauty of the area. The event is designed so that athletes of all abilities can be part of a great experience and feel the rush that achieving a goal can give. The very nature of running encourages a healthy, active lifestyle that is environmentally friendly promoting “people powered” means of transportation. This marathon will have a festival atmosphere and will leave no impact on the race site.
