The plan was just to have the 50K Ultra for one year however we didn’t know there were so many lofty runners looking to challenge themselves further and go an extra 7.805K (as if a marathon isn’t tough enough!)
In 2014, the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon launched a 50K Ultra Road Race in celebration of the 50th Anniversary and 500 runners signed up for the sold out race with a whopping 410 finishers crossing the line in the 6.5 hour cut off. Following the race, many provided feedback through survey results, social media and by way of email asking us to keep the 50K.
For newcomers to ultra-running, the 50K Ultra, part of the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon Race Weekend, is a great way to get in to longer distances and for ultra veterans, it’s a wonderful way to be part of a big city, mass participation event!
