Scotiabank Calgary Marathon May 31 - Sept. 27, 2020

Join the Foothills Academy team at the annual Scotiabank Calgary Marathon. We're usually one of the largest teams and are among the highest fundraising groups!

This is a fun, family event. Participants can choose from any of the races ranging from a 50K ultra-marathon to a leisurely 5K walk or special Kids Marathon. Most Foothills Academy participants register to run or walk in the 5K race.

We may not be able to gather to do the Marathon all together but we can still show our community spirit while we support a cause we care about. We will find some fun ways to recognize and celebrate all our combined efforts. More details to come.
