Runners are always looking for a fall half marathon to cap off the end of the race season. If we were you, we would pick the Harvest Half! Weaving its way through beautiful Fish Creek Park, the Harvest Half Marathon checks all the boxes. Beautiful course, check. Great volunteers, check. Well organized, check. Great prizes, double check. Join hundreds of other runners on September 29th, 2018 for a run through the park!
The Harvest Half Marathon has supported the Calgary running community and local Alberta based charities for the past 17 years. We have raised over $ 600,000.00 to help our beneficiaries’ manage their programs and we look forward to helping you enjoy a premier half marathon race this fall !
We are excited to launch our 2018 race registration. We have partnered with the Sport Injury Prevention Research Centre (SIPRC) at the University of Calgary.
Our motto in this partnership is “ Helping Kids Stay Active for Life ”. The SIPRC focusses on youth and young adults and is dedicated to provide Injury Prevention in all sport and recreational activities so that we can all lead an active life.
Sport and Recreation participation accounts for over 30% of youth injury in Canada. Injuries are the leading cause of medical attention, hospitalization and death in Canadian youth. Did you know that Youth Injury leads to reduced participation in physical activity, increased weight issues, obesity, post-traumatic osteoarthritis, disability, depression and an increase in chronic illness ? Lifelong participation in Sport and Recreation, including running, is a key component of healthy living. The SIPRC program focuses on the prevention of injury and long-term consequences of injury in youth. We hope that you will work with the HHM to raise donations for the SIPRC and that we are “ Helping Kids Stay Active for Life ”.
