The second Wednesday Night event of the 2018 season will be a sprint-style event at the University of Calgary. This is one of the best urban sprint maps in the city. Courses will feature a lot of twists and turns through courtyards and around buildings. Running will be a combination of smooth grass and pavement (no spikes please!).
Registration / Start / Finish will be at the Starbucks off 24th Ave. east of Collegiate Rd. NW.
It is in the ground floor of the Yamnuska Residence building.

Parking: Parking is a headache at the UofC. Sorry, that's the cost of doing business on this map. There is some hourly pay parking outside Starbucks at the start/finish area. You can find free on-street parking in University Heights, the neighbourhood south of 24 Ave. N, though you may need to park several blocks from the University to get outside the permit area. The nearest on-campus parking lots are Lot 53 at the W end of 24th Ave behind the Physical Plant (hourly), Lot 59 off Collegiate Blvd (hourly), Lot 10 off 32 Ave (flat rate), or the Arts Parkade off 24 Ave (flat rate). I believe the hourly lots are $5/hr and the flat rate lots are $8 after 6pm. See the UofC Parking Website for info.

To volunteer, please add your name to the Volunteer SIgn-Up page. Thank you for your support!
All participants must have a 2018 Membership. You can either:

As always, course distances are estimates, but will be correct within +/- 500m.
On urban maps, you will often run much farther than the straight-line distance!
