St. Patrick's Island Fun Run

Begin summer in Hawaiian style and say Aloha! to St. Patrick’s Island with the inaugural St. Patrick's Island Fun Run and Urban Luau on Saturday May 7th beginning at 11:00 A.M.

Dig out your Hawaiian finest and lace up for a fun 4 KM run and walk exploring the newest addition to downtown and East Village - St. Patrick’s Island.

CMLC is partnering up with Calgary Marathon Society to present the inaugural run on St. Patrick’s Island will be commemorated with a special t-shirt and bib as well as a finishers’ lei.

The action begins on the South side of the river at George C. King bridge where the hula volunteers will send you off on the 4 KM tour guided by tiki torches. Finish big on top of the hill between the larger than life palm trees where a lei will be placed around your neck.

Stay for an Urban Luau post-race picnic and St. Patrick's Island fun following the event on the Rise.


Registration includes t-shirt, bib, timed race (but not chipped) and post-race snacks.

Like all Albertans, after hearing harrowing tales and seeing haunting footage of the devastation caused by the wildfires in Northern parts of our province this week, the team at Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) feels compelled to do something to lessen the burden our friends in Fort McMurray are experiencing. As a small gesture and an act of solidarity, our team will be collecting cash donations for the Red Cross at the St. Patrick’s Island Fun Run taking place this Saturday, May 7. We urge anyone who is participating in the Fun Run or other Calgarians passing through the park to stop by the SPI tent to make any financial contribution that suits their means. All donations collected that day will be matched by CMLC and donated to the Red Cross’ relief effort. The SPI tent will be set-up at The Rise on St. Patrick’s Island from 11am-1:30pm.
