If you need one more reason to lace up on Sunday May 29th for the 58th Calgary Marathon, you just got it. A new title sponsor, Servus Credit Union, is creating exciting new energy around the event, with activations participants haven’t seen before and a new look and feel.
Run Calgary is excited to work in partnership with Servus Credit Union through June 2026. This partnership expands Servus’s commitment to create healthier communities and charitable giving in Alberta, which already includes The Servus Edmonton Marathon. Ian Burns, President and CEO of Servus Credit Union, said, “We are thrilled to be the title sponsor for the Servus Calgary Marathon. One of our goals is to make our communities healthier and Run Calgary is the perfect organization to partner with to accomplish it. Together we can support the Calgary community in becoming more physically, mentally, and financially fit.”
The Servus Calgary Marathon sponsorship includes the banner marathon distance and the longstanding charity challenge, which to date has raised more than $8 million for local charities. This year, individuals who race and participate in the Servus Charity Challenge can choose from more than 70 official charity partners. Some 2,000 charity runners are expected to raise $600,000 through the Servus Charity Challenge in 2022.
“We are proud to partner with Servus Credit Union, a purpose driven business dedicated to doing things differently and with longstanding roots in our backyard” said Kirsten Fleming, Executive Director of Run Calgary and the Calgary Marathon. “We share similar values, to provide physical and financial literacy in the hopes of raising the overall health of the communities where we work, live and play and this partnership will allow us to get creative and reach more people.”
Over the coming years, participants will benefit from investments in technology, additional charitable partners and new partnerships extended through Servus’s 380,000 member base. Additionally, Servus will be mobilizing its employees in Alberta to run, walk, volunteer and cheer as part of its ongoing commitment to employee engagement and a healthy workplace.
There are limited spots left across all the distances and you can run, walk or use your mobility device in the 5KM, 10KM, 21KM, or Marathon and run the 50KM.
Registration for the 2022 Servus Calgary Marathon is open and the event will take place on Sunday, May 29th. To register and learn more about the Servus Calgary Marathon, visit: www.calgarymarathon.com
