What's an extra 7.805K ... really?

The plan was just to have the 50K Ultra for one year however we didn’t know there were so many lofty runners looking to challenge themselves further and go an extra 7.805K (as if a marathon isn’t tough enough!)

In 2014, the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon launched a 50K Ultra Road Race in celebration of the 50th Anniversary and 500 runners signed up for the sold out race with a whopping 410 finishers crossing the line in the 6.5 hour cut off. Following the race, many provided feedback through survey results, social media and by way of email asking us to keep the 50K. 

For newcomers to ultra-running, the 50K Ultra, part of the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon Race Weekend, is a great way to get in to longer distances and for ultra veterans, it’s a wonderful way to be part of a big city, mass participation event!

National Championships - National Championships in 2017 Pending. In 2016 the organizing committee was thrilled to be awarded the National Championships for the third year in a row by the Association of Canadian Ultramarathoners (ACU). 

International Designation - Designation in 2017 Pending. The International Association of Ultrarunners (IAU) is designating the 50K Ultra as a trophy series race and issuing the event a bronze label, which is the international sanctioning for ultra races.

The trophy series is an international 50K series where runners can qualify at any of the designated series race to compete in the 50K world trophy race. The top man under 3:20 and top woman under 3:50 will automatically qualify for the world race. If nobody breaks those times there will be no qualification and if more than one person breaks those times it’s only the first runner in each gender who will qualify. 

For more information on the IAU visit www.iau-ultramarathon.org

Please Note: Late Registration at the expo will close at 12 noon on May 27th, 2017. NO new registrations will be accepted past this time. In 2014 & 2015, the 50K distance sold out before expo closed, please register early so as not to be disappointed.

De retour suite à la demande…

Au départ, nous devions organiser le 50KM Ultra pour une seule année. Nous étions loin de nous douter qu’il existait autant de coureurs ambitieux prêts à relever le défi d’un 7.805 Km d’extra (comme si un marathon n’était pas déjà assez difficile !)

En 2014, la Banque Scotia a donc décidé de lancer le 50KM Ultra de route pendant les festivités du 50e anniversaire et pas moins de 500 coureurs se sont inscrit ! La course affichait donc complet et ce sont 410 coureurs qui ont franchi la ligne d’arrivée en moins de 6.5 heures. Après la course, plusieurs ont exprimé par sondage, par réseau sociaux et par email qu’ils désiraient qu’on continue d’offrir le 50km.

Pour les novices à la course Ultra, le 50km Ultra qui prendra part à la fin de semaine de marathon de la Banque Scotia de Calgary, est une occasion en or pour commencer dans les plus longues distances de course. Pour les vétérans, l’occasion est parfaite pour célébrer un événement d’une telle envergure !

Vous avez des questions ? Consultez les FAQ 50km Ultra.

SVP Notez que les inscriptions sur place se termineront à 12h le samedi 28 mai 2016. AUCUNE nouvelle inscription ne sera acceptée après cette période. En 2014, toutes les distances de course étaient complètes avant la clôture de l'Expo. SVP inscrivez-vous tôt pour ne pas être déçu.

50K Ultra

Sunday, May 28th 2017 - 7:00 AM

What's an extra 7.805K ... really?

The plan was just to have the 50K Ultra for one year however we didn’t know there were so many lofty runners looking to challenge themselves further and go an extra 7.805K (as if a marathon isn’t tough enough!)

In 2014, the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon launched a 50K Ultra Road Race in celebration of the 50th Anniversary and 500 runners signed up for the sold out race with a whopping 410 finishers crossing the line in the 6.5 hour cut off. Following the race, many provided feedback through survey results, social media and by way of email asking us to keep the 50K. 

For newcomers to ultra-running, the 50K Ultra, part of the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon Race Weekend, is a great way to get in to longer distances and for ultra veterans, it’s a wonderful way to be part of a big city, mass participation event!

National Championships - National Championships in 2017 Pending. In 2016 the organizing committee was thrilled to be awarded the National Championships for the third year in a row by the Association of Canadian Ultramarathoners (ACU). 

International Designation - Designation in 2017 Pending. The International Association of Ultrarunners (IAU) is designating the 50K Ultra as a trophy series race and issuing the event a bronze label, which is the international sanctioning for ultra races.

The trophy series is an international 50K series where runners can qualify at any of the designated series race to compete in the 50K world trophy race. The top man under 3:20 and top woman under 3:50 will automatically qualify for the world race. If nobody breaks those times there will be no qualification and if more than one person breaks those times it’s only the first runner in each gender who will qualify. 

For more information on the IAU visit www.iau-ultramarathon.org

Have more question? please see 50KM Ultra FAQs

Please Note: Late Registration at the expo will close at 12 noon on May 27th, 2017. NO new registrations will be accepted past this time. In 2014 & 2015, the 50K distance sold out before expo closed, please register early so as not to be disappointed.

While continuing on to the next phase immediately is what would be the case in most ultra events, we unfortunately cannot allow runners to proceed onto the 50KM course due to safety concerns until the race course is closed to traffic.

Transitions:

  • All transition areas are marked on the below maps for the 100KM and 50Km portion.

A safe and memorable experience for all runners is paramount for the Run Calgary team. Due to the decommission of the bridge from Inglewood to the Zoo, we had to make some changes including moving the 10K to begin at 11am for what we expect to be 1 year only. 

You will still experience a big city race and all the comes with it, including the BIG FINISH at Stampede Park in the Grandstand. 

Stay a while as we make a draw at 2:01pm and all finishers will get a chance to win a trip for 2 by rail from CanadaRail.ca worth $5800  - you must be in the stands to win!

 

A Race for Everyone!

If you are looking for a great 10K to kick off your summer, this is it! It does not matter whether you run or walk, it is a great feat just to complete the 10K distance.

Scotiabank Kids Marathon Map 

There are many great viewing locations along the course to watch your child run. Once your child crosses the finish line they will enter the “kids finish corral” where they will receive a medal and snack and be released into the “Parents Corral”. Please go to the “Parents Corral” to pick up your child. You will require your matching race bib to exit this area. In the unlikely event that you cannot find your child, there will be a volunteer with a large “Lost Child” sign to help you reunite with your child.
