RBC Race for the Kids

Register for RBC Race for the Kids!

The annual RBC Race for the Kids is returning to Heritage Park! This family-friendly day includes a 6-km run along scenic pathways overlooking the Glenmore Reservoir, a pancake breakfast and a whole lot of fun. Registration also includes a race T-shirt, an environmentally friendly completion medal for each participant, free parking, all-day access to Heritage Park, and more. You can also choose to complete a shorter circuit inside the park – this is a favourite among families with little ones – or sign up as a virtual participant and make RBC Race your own!

Now in its eighth year, the RBC Race for the Kids funds programs and services that support the increasing number of kids in our community who are accessing much-needed mental health resources. The race supported the creation of Calgary’s first community-based mental health centre for kids, The Summit: Marian & Jim Sinneave Centre for Youth Resilience, which opened its doors in the spring of 2023, and will fund programs like Acute at Home, mental health literacy and vital research specific to youth mental health that will help kids now and for generations to come.

Sign Up Early and Win

Early birds who register for RBC Race for the Kids before July 1 will save on registration fees and be entered to win two tickets to see Kings of Leon in concert September 3 at the Scotiabank Saddledome. Any adult who registers before the deadline will qualify. Stay tuned for the draw date!
