5 Winter Running Tips from Run Calgary

How to stay moving during the snowy months.

It can be hard to lace up and get out the door when the temperature drops, but Run Calgary has tips for maintaining your run A-game over the winter.


Run Social

Find a local crew at runcalgary.com and join up for free Ale Trail nights. New friends and local beer can warm up any chilly winter run.


Cross Train

When the temperature dips beyond your comfort zone, hit the treadmill and cross train to give yourself an edge over winter.


Gear Up

Connect with experienced runners and check out your local run stores to get the goods on winter running gear, e.g., a headlamp and layers.


Set Goals

Make your winter miles count by setting your sight on a spring race. Register for your next race at runcalgary.com and use a training plan to help you reach your goal.


Make Meaning

Running for a cause can change your focus and give you an external reason to keep on running. Run in support of one of more than 80 local charities participating in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge.


Stay motivated by registering now for any race distance at the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon race weekend, May 24 – 26, 2019. Keep running through the winter as you train for the 50K Ultra, the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon, the Centaur Subaru Half Marathon, the Jugo Juice 10K or the Good Life Fitness 5KM family run & walk.
