East Village Spirit Hub & Calgary Marathon

May 26 2013 (All day)
We must defend our title as the 2012 Community Spirit Hub winners for 2013!

 The Marathon is back! Don't worry, we aren't asking you to dust off your runners, how about you dust off your vocal cords instead?

Last year was the first time the Calgary Marathon came through East Village, it was exciting to see 15,000 runners stampede through our community, and what was even more thrilling? Working together to cheer them on & welcome them to the new East Village. We did such a great job we actually won the Community Spirit Award and earned $2,500 for our neighbourhood charity The Calgary Drop In Centre.

However, 2013 is a whole new year and we think we have a great shot at winning again, but only with your help! We need YOU to paint posters, shake pompoms, blow whistles, cheer, clap, dance and shout to keep East Village’s community spirit alive!

Think you have what it takes? Join us at the East Village Experience Centre May 26th starting at 7 AM. It sure is early, but don’t worry we’ll have coffee and goodies to keep you going! The competition is steep amongst the rival communities this year, so help us remain the neighbourhood to beat in year two!

East Village Experience Centre is located at 553 Riverfront Ave. SE

EV will have the beginning of the marathoners and half marathoners trickling through starting at 7:20 AM. Waves of 10k runners will pass by at 7:55 AM, and the return of the half marathoners at 8:15 AM, and full marathoners at 9:50 AM. 5K comes past our spirit hub around noon!
