Calgary Women’s Run 2024

August 25 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

Registration is now open for Calgary Women’s Run! To register, please click here.

Please join us on Sunday August 25th for the 46th annual Calgary Women’s Run in Edworthy Park – 5km or 10km! All registrants will receive a swag bag including a SILIPINT Cup, Lakeview Bakery finish line treats, a Village Ice Cream and so much more!

Join 300 women and girls for one of Canada’s oldest women’s running races along the Bow River in Calgary, Alberta. Completely volunteer-led, this amazing race donates all proceeds to local charities, while encouraging community, health, wellness and athletic excellence.

All proceeds from the race go to the Urban Society for Aboriginal Youth (USAY). USAY is an Indigenous-led organization that supports urban Indigenous youth ages 12 to 29 years that live in the City of Calgary.

Our aim is to tackle ‘period poverty’ in the City by providing ‘Moon Time Kits’. Each kit contains menstrual, hygiene and comfort items to support those who menstruate but are experiencing financial constraints. The kits focus on wellness, health and hygiene, by providing pads, tampons, wipes, deodorant, soothing tea and other items. Donations from the Calgary Women’s Run go toward purchasing items for the kits, and USAY’s Indigenous young women assemble them and distribute to those who need them, including those that are houseless or at-risk of houselessness.
