Beat Beethoven

Run Calgary and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) 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 run or 4km walk before the CPO completes 50 minutes of Beethoven's best music. Alongside the symphony accompaniment, you'll be running next to the beautiful Bow River in a 4km looped course. After you've crossed the finish line, enjoy a glass of sparkling wine while taking in a 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!

Participants in this event must be 18+.

Registration includes:

  • Post race celebration and outdoor concert by the CPO

  • Complimentary glass of Taittinger Champagne

  • Light dinner post-race

  • A limited edition etched wine glass

  • Wine-themed finishers' medal

  • Runners also have the option to purchase a limited edition Beat Beethoven t-shirt (proceeds go towards Phil Kids)
