ARE iPODS/MP3 PLAYERS/HEADPHONES ALLOWED?
The Event prohibits the use of these devices for the runner’s safety and the safety of those around them. There is no risk of disqualification for simple use, however, if a runner puts themselves or other runners at risk, directly or indirectly through the use of these items, the Event reserves the right to disqualify the participant.
DO I RECEIVE A MEDAL FOR COMPLETING THE HALF MARATHON EVENT?
Yes! both marathon and half marathon runners receive a medal.
ARE THERE A LOT OF HILLS/UPS AND DOWNS ON THE RACE COURSE?
There are no major hills on this route! The event begins in Banff, links up to the legacy trail and heads on to the Bow Valley Parkway towards Lake Louise. The turnaround brings you back through the Parkway and into the town centre. There are some minor inclines and declines, but nothing too intense.
CAN I CHANGE MY REGISTRATION TO A DIFFERENT RACE LENGTH?
Yes. Should you register, then decide you would like to race a different distance there will be a $20 administrative fee. *If going from a lower cost to a higher cost race, you will have to pay the additional costs (subtracted from what you have already paid).
IS THE BANFF MARATHON A BOSTON MARATHON QUALIFIER?
Currently the Banff Marathon is not certified as a Boston qualifier. The course will be the accurate distance for timing purposes, and we are exploring the potential of becoming a certified Boston qualifier in future years.
IF I CHANGE FROM A MARATHON TO A HALF OR 10K WILL I BE REFUNDED THE DIFFERENCE?
We are happy to allow you to change your distance, provided it is done before the regular registration deadline date, but no refunds are issued. The standard $20 administrative fee will also apply to these changes.
