Did you set a resolution to get into running? Maybe you’re going to try a 5k for the first time, or you’re like me looking for a half marathon to sign up for. I had a request in our Better LIVIN Crew Facebook group (if you haven’t joined- do!) to research and put together a list of 2020 Road Races in the Lethbridge area.
Since I’m on mat leave and focusing more on revitalizing my blog, I took the time to put together the following list. Some don’t have 2020 dates listed yet so I’ve included the month and website so you can check back often.
Calgary has A TON of races all year long but I wanted this post to stay closer to home.
Of course after spending a lot of time putting this list together, I found an even better list on the Runner’s Soul website. Ha ha!
If I missed a race, please let me know and I’ll be happy to add it!
Also- If you are interested in maybe running a race together, let me know! If I can make it work I would love to do a race meetup. 🙂
