The first 10 people to register for Sonshine’s team and commit to raising at least $100 will have their race registration fee waved! Sonshine will receive every penny you raise, as all administrative costs are being covered by Scotiabank! If you prefer to not use the online fundraising system, we will provide you with a hard copy pledge form to use in your fundraising

The Scotiabank Calgary Marathon was voted the 2009 Best Road Race in Alberta. There is a race designed for everyone of any level, including a full marathon, half-marathon, 10 km, 5 km family walk or run and a kids’ marathon.
