2020 will be the 10th annual Run for L'Arche and to date has raised over $460,000 for L’Arche Calgary, a charity which helps and supports people with developmental disabilities.
The Half Marathon, 10 KM and 5 KM distances are Canadian Certified Timed distances and the courses are primarily flat! The Start / Finish line is located at Fort Calgary with three new certified routes. Run for L’Arche features super cool shirts, medals to all finishers, age category medals including 70+, lots of cheering along the way, special recognition and valuable prizes for the top fundraiser and top fundraising team and fun awards for insurance industry participants. Everyone is a winner at the Run for L'Arche!
For the kids and family, the 1K Fun Run & Obstacle Course has developed into a central feature on race day with hot chocolate for the kids and an emphasis on fun! And the Run’s mascot Winter Willie is always a popular attraction.
The Run for L'Arche is a popular early season start to the Calgary race calendar and we welcome all levels of runners to participate.
Over the years this event has grown to over 450 participants on race day including over 100 volunteers, friends and family. We even have celebrity race starters!
Economical Insurance has been the principal sponsor since its inception in 2011. L'Arche Calgary commented: “Great community minded organizations like Economical and the Roger’s Insurance Planning Committee, are both a real asset in supporting the Calgary community”.
