HER Calgary

Dear HER Runners,

We know that you would like to be training for the inaugural HER Running Series in Calgary in June. However, the COVID-19 situation continues to affect all of us, and we must remain strong, while we adapt and prepare to be ready for the future! Our mission and strict priority are for your safety and to do something to give back to our community.

As we are sure you are aware, the City of Calgary cancelled all events through June 30th, which means that our 2020 event needs to be reimagined from the safety of our homes.

So for this year, we are holding the HER Virtual Running Series – Calgary, which will give us the opportunity to stay connected, active, and give back to those in need! While we all enjoy the collective event experience and all that goes along with it, we passionately believe that through our collective efforts we can make a difference during this time of unprecedented community need. In place of medals and swag, we will donate those funds to the Calgary Food Bank.
We invite you to join us in helping make a huge impact in feeding those in need by:
Running 5K in your neighbourhood, being mindful and careful to maintain proper physical distancing on or before Sunday, May 3rd.

Posting photos from your run on social media using the hashtag #HERrunsforrelief and @calgaryfoodbank.

Sharing, liking, and tagging posts in an effort to raise the profile of the Calgary Food Bank and further promote donations during this time of crisis.Thank you for supporting our relief efforts in the community.  
Stay strong and safe,
HER Running Series
