Beat Beethoven

Run Calgary and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra are collaborating by colliding the wonderful worlds of music and run! Lace up in support of the CPO in a fun event new to Calgary, as seen in cities around the world.

Challenge yourself to finish an 8km race before the CPO completes 50 minutes of Beethoven's best music. You'll run along the beautiful Bow River in a 4km looped course. After you've crossed the finish line, enjoy a glass of wine under the big white tent while taking in a free concert by CPO highlighting their upcoming season. Friends and family can enjoy the free outdoor concert, too – they worked hard to cheer you on, after all!

Registration includes:

  • Custom Beat Beethoven wine glass
  • Wine stopper finishers' medal
  • Complimentary sparkling wine 
  • Personalized race bib
  • Post race celebration and outdoor concert by the CPO
  • Chip timed event
  • Opportunity to help support the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra
