Know someone running in the marathon this year? Or maybe you just missed your calling as a cheerleader early on in life. Join EV residents, lululemon Calgary, EAST Crew, and friends of the community at the EV Spirit Hub as we root for runners in the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon.

Doesn't matter which 'hood you're from - everyone is welcome to join the EV Spirit Hub. BassBus will supply great music to keep the runners - and the cheerers - pumped up.

We've won the marathon's community spirit award six years in a row and we're back in 2018 to reclaim our crown!

Please note: There will be many road closures in the area due to the race route. As always, it's best to walk, bike or take transit into our neighbourhood.
