MELISSA'S ROAD RACE

Melissa’s Road Race is one of Canada’s most historic and popular running events.  Heading in to its 39th year, Melissa’s features sensationally scenic routes in and around Banff National Park and routinely sells out.  The event features a 5k, 10k and Half Marathon and has been described as a colourful display of sport and fun in Banff National Park.  Melissa’s has received multiple awards as Alberta’s Best Road Race and is a longstanding tradition in Banff.
