Melissa's Road Race

September 28, 2019

A favourite among locals, Melissa’s Road Race is a family-friendly, annual running event in Banff. Famed for being a colourful, fun race, the event is geared up for runners and spectators alike. With entertainers set up along the course, plenty of great places to fuel up pre-race and replenish post-race, and an abundance of spa and wellness providers to relax and rejuvenate, it’s sure to be a weekend to remember for all involved!

With a course that takes you through beautiful Banff National Park, Melissa’s Road Race is suitable for all ages and abilities offering a 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon (21K) race. 2019 is a very special year for Melissa’s Road Race as the event celebrates its 40th anniversary! To mark this notable occasion, Melissa herself will be making a special guest appearance, returning to Banff to run the race alongside her daughter. Each participant will also receive a commemorative retro long sleeve shirt.
