Welcome to the 5th Anniversary of Eyeball the Wall!
Eyeball the Wall is a 30km or 15km running race on May 4th (Star wars day anyone?) around Glenmore Reservoir. This race is a perfect lead up event for those aiming towards the Calgary Marathon, Ultra or Half marathon. Our event has a long standing tradition of focusing on helping runners have the best day on event day!
The event started to help runners overcome the winter blues- and provide a goal event to get our friendly Alberta runners fit in time for the Calgary race season. After all- why would you do your long run alone when you can sign up for Eyeball the Wall and get a fully supported run with an atmosphere you'll never forget? Since we first started our event has grown and grown! In 2018 we will be having our 5th Anniversary and we have some exciting "extras" planned for all of our participants!
WHY EYEBALL THE WALL? Great question! We often get asked why we have such a unique name for our event! The 30km point of the marathon (and the 15 km mark of the 1/2 marathon) are often referred to as "The Wall" / or the hardest point of the race. Whether you are just racing our unique event, or you are using it to stimulate how your focus race day will be we are here to provide an event with grassroots "roots," and a world class experience.
