Calgary Stampeder Deron Mayo to attend Calgary Police Half Marathon

We’re very excited to have Calgary Stampeder Deron Mayo join us on Sunday for the 37th annual Calgary Police Half Marathon. Deron will be attending our first-ever Rookies and Legends race to say hi to the kids and seniors participating in this great event. He’ll also be helping at the half marathon, 10K and 5K finish line!

2016 was Deron Mayo’s fifth season with the Calgary Stampeders and his first as Captain of Defense. The 28-year-old Hampton, Va., native was the Stampeders’ nominee for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Defensive Player award in 2015 after recording a team-high 72 tackles as well as five sacks, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.  In November 2016, he was awarded with the prestigious Presidents’ Ring.  This distinction, voted on by the players, recognizes excellence in leadership, inspiration, motivational skills and in-game contributions.  He is also became a Grey Cup Champion when the Stamps took the title in 2014.  Deron joins the Calgary Police Service Half Marathon on Sunday to visit with runners and help distribute medals with Olympian Bronze Medalist Akeem Haynes.
