EYEBALL THE WALL RETURNS MAY 13, 2023!

 

 

 

Eyeball the Wall is an affordable 5km, 15km or 30km running race that loops the Glenmore Reservoir.  This race is a great prep for those participating in the Calgary Marathon weekend – regardless of distance.  The 30km point of the marathon (and the 15 km mark of the 1/2 marathon) are often referred to as “The Wall” which is the hardest point of the race.  This is a unique opportunity to “eyeball” your wall as you prepare for your season.

Your race entry includes:

  • Professionally organized and chip-timed race
  • Aid station support
  • Official finisher’s medal
  • Post-race refreshments
  • Bragging rights
  • Virtual race option (scroll down to learn more)

Before you start your Virtual Event, it is best to have a GPS watch/tracking device. If you have a GPS tracking device or software (i.e. Garmin, FitBit, Apple Watch, smartphone, etc.), simply record your virtual event and save it.  Uploading your results is very simple and directions on this can be found in the “HOW TO SUBMIT A VIRTUAL RESULT” section below.   Don’t forget to charge your device before you start!  If you do not have a GPS tracking device…try to borrow one from a friend, or maybe it is time for an early Christmas present!  Can’t find a GPS tracking device?  No problem – email us at tom@platinumracing.ca for other solutions.

4. Download Your Race Bib

We have created an Official Souvenir Race Bib for your Virtual Event!  It is optional for you to wear the bib but it is a lot fun and great for the pictures (those wearing bibs will get extra chances to win prizes!).  We recommend you download the bib and place it in a waterproof sleeve. Email us here if you’d like a bib: tom@platinumracing.ca
