Melissa's Virtual Road Race
A favourite among locals, Melissa’s Road Race is a family-friendly, annual running event in Banff. For 2020, Melissa's Road Race will take place virtually.
The Virtual Melissa’s Park Road Race will take place from September 26 to October 12, 2020. Run by yourself, or with friends and family. You can run whenever, wherever - around your neighborhood, on a treadmill, or any course of your choosing. You will have your own finish line, but you won’t be alone! You will be connected together with the unbreakable spirit of Melissa’s and Banff National Park.
Not sure where to run this year? If you're able to travel to Banff National Park, choose from one of the many scenic trails from which you can enjoy spectacular mountain vistas. With a portion of the Bow Valley Parkway closed to vehicle traffic, participants have the opportunity to run the actual route along the spectacular roadway while maintaining social distance. These options allow you to run when you please, and offer further opportunities to enjoy Banff National Park in September and October.
