FAQ

  1. Can another registered participant pick up my run, walk & ride package at the Package Pick Up?

    Yes

  2. Are dogs allowed?

    We prefer no dogs, but we leave this up to the dog owner as they know their dog better than we do.

  3. Are strollers allowed?

    Absolutely! There are hundreds of them at this family event.

  4. Do participants under the age of 4 need to complete and submit a Registration Form?

    Yes, all participants (even "no charge" participants) must be registered. A parent or guardian must sign the waiver form.

  5. Do you offer complimentary entry fees for elite runners?

    No. This is a family fundraising event.

  6. Is there a separate registration for the Little Legs Race?

    No. It is free for children (2 – 4 years of age) that have a parent or guardian that have registered for the run, walk & ride. Please note that all Little Legs participants must still have the registration waiver signed by a parent or guardian.

  7. Where do the proceeds go?

    We are fortunate enough to have had this event support the Calgary Health Trust (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – Foothills Medical Centre) for the past 11 years raising $2,085,000! This year, we will continue to support the Calgary Health Trust (NICU) & Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities!

  8. Is parking free at Chinook Centre?

    Yes

  9. Is Calgary Transit free on Mother’s Day?

    Yes, but you must be wearing your run, walk & ride race bib or volunteer shirt.

  10. Where do I find my race bib number?

    Bib numbers will be available May 7th. Please check the website for details. If you cannot find your bib number, an online help link is available and bib number look-up lists will be posted at Package Pick Up.

  11. Is there event day registration?

    No. The last opportunity to register is on Saturday, May 12th (10:00am – 4:00pm) at Package Pick Up.

  12. Can I run with my child who is doing the 5 KM or 9 KM ride?

    Yes. Please note that if you choose to do this you will not be timed as the ride is not a timed event.

  13. Can I walk the 10 KM course?

    We prefer that the 10 KM continues to be a run only event as we are required to be off of the Calgary roadway system by 10:45am.

  14. Do you have a place at Chinook Centre where participants can leave their jackets, sports bags etc.

    Yes, we have a Bag Check Tent that is staffed during the event. It is a $5 donation.

  15. Are there washrooms on the run, walk & ride course?

    Yes. There are portable washrooms at Chinook Centre (also inside Chinook Centre) & the 2 Water/Rest Stations on the course.
