To all of our city’s first responders, health care workers and essential service providers, we will wait to start until after you reach the finish line. This week would have been the Calgary Police Half Marathon’s 40th anniversary event. While we share your disappointment that we are not able to participate at this time, we must remember this is all for each other’s safety and that we are in this together. Your health and safety as a valued CPHM supporter is our priority, and we will do our part as responsible corporate partners to abide by all government issued event cancellations and restrictions.
Our hope is to hold the CPHM 40th anniversary event in the Fall later this year. We are working with our partners at the City of Calgary to make this happen and will communicate more details to you as they become available. We know that last year’s cancellation followed by a postponement this year makes it difficult to continue the momentum, but please know we are doing everything we can to honour our commitment to hosting this special event at a later date.
We know everyone could use a reason to smile, and in celebration of our 40th race year, we invite you to share your favourite memories of past CPHM events, like this vintage photo of a CPHM. Let’s use social media to jog our memories and share your favourite photos or stories on our Instagram or Twitter (both @YYCPoliceHalf) and Facebook (@CalgaryPolice) channels using the #YYCPoliceHalf.
We thank you all for your continued support, understanding and patience as we work through this difficult time.
– CPHM Committee
