Welcome to the Banff Marathon!
One of the world's most beautiful and unique destinations has been given the opportunity to host the most famous running event, the marathon. The Banff Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K will offer runners of all abilities the chance to participate in this truly special event.
Imagine yourself on a journey that flows from Banff Central Park, runs past Vermilion Lakes, up the Bow Valley Parkway and loops to finish in beautiful downtown Banff. It is the running adventure of a lifetime. The scenery is breathtaking and you will experience many different interpretive, geographical, wilderness and historical stages on your trek. Run by the stunning mountain vistas known to Banff National Park, Moose Meadows, the new Legacy Trail, and serene Vermillion Lakes - just to name a few. Interpretive stations at each of these stages will be set up along the way at the aid stations if you want to learn more about your journey.
Although the run takes place in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, the course is not too grueling with a slightly rolling and relatively flat terrain.
The weekend will also be filled with family activities, The Banff Health and Fitness Expo, BMO Kids Run, Clinics and all the incredible activities Banff has to offer.
