  • The Cops & Joggers 5K Run & Walk will begin at 8:30 a.m.

Cheering Areas: It’s a great feeling to have support along the way! If you have family and friends coming to cheer you on, let them know about the designated cheering areas.

Race Shirts: If you registered before noon on Wednesday, April 25, your race shirt will be available at race package pick up.

Team members and friends can pick up race shirts on behalf of registrants, if needed.

Tech Shop Mother of all Running Sales: Once again we are co-hosting with The Tech Shop the “Mother of all Running Sales” on Friday, April 27, from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday, April 28, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A huge selection of technical running shoes, running apparel and accessories will be available at discounts up to 70 per cent off. These deals are only available for two days only during the Calgary Police Half Marathon Package Pickup at Mount Royal University.

Pledge Program: Don’t forget the great prizes available for collecting pledges! Prizes are for the top three individuals and teams who raise the most money for the Calgary Police Foundation – with 100% of the pledge money going to fund six youth-based programs that help keep Calgary kids safe. Read all about the pledge program and get your family and friends to pledge your participation – no matter your race distance – here.

Prizes & Draws: After you finish your race, join us in the main gymnasium to recognize the top finishers for each race. The top male, female and police finishers will receive a gift card for the Tech Shop. The top three finishers from each age category (both male and female) for all three races will also be entered in a draw for one of two cruiser bikes from Bow Cycle. It’s worth it to stick around!

Weather: In the event of severe weather, the Half Marathon Committee will make a decision to continue with the race or cancel it. If the race is cancelled, all participants will be notified by email.

Rookies & Legends: If you have a friend or family member participating in this year’s Rookies & Legends race, please note that there is no need to pick up a race package before Sunday. You will get what you need when you check in on race day.
