Race Postponement

Race Postponement

To all of our city’s first responders, health care workers and essential service providers, we will wait to start until after you reach the finish line. This week would have been the Calgary Police Half Marathon’s 40th anniversary event. While we share your disappointment that we are not able to participate at this time, we must remember this is all for each other’s safety and that we are in this together. Your health and safety as a valued CPHM supporter is our priority, and we will do our part as responsible corporate partners to abide by all government issued event cancellations and restrictions.

Our hope is to hold the CPHM 40th anniversary event in the Fall later this year. We are working with our partners at the City of Calgary to make this happen and will communicate more details to you as they become available. We know that last year’s cancellation followed by a postponement this year makes it difficult to continue the momentum, but please know we are doing everything we can to honour our commitment to hosting this special event at a later date.

We know everyone could use a reason to smile, and in celebration of our 40th race year, we invite you to share your favourite memories of past CPHM events, like this vintage photo of a CPHM. Let’s use social media to jog our memories and share your favourite photos or stories on our Instagram or Twitter (both @YYCPoliceHalf) and Facebook (@CalgaryPolice) channels using the #YYCPoliceHalf.

We thank you all for your continued support, understanding and patience as we work through this difficult time.

CPHM update – 2020 race postponement

CPHM update – 2020 race postponement

To our Calgary Police Half Marathon racers,

These are exceptional times for our nation. With extraordinary restrictions being placed on our day-to-day life, the CPHM Committee has been working diligently to develop contingencies for the 2020 race.

Given the most recent restrictions as detailed by the Premier in his March 17th news conference and the declared State of Public Emergency,  the City of Calgary has asked that events between now and April 30th be cancelled or postponed. Effective immediately we have temporarily suspended registration. We are working with the City of Calgary on contingencies to host our race this Fall.  As soon as we have more information and race details, we will share it with you via email and our social media platforms.

Given the complicated circumstances we appreciate your understanding and patience as we work together through this.

On behalf of the entire CPHM Committee, thank you for your continued support.

Stay healthy!
