US and International Participants Announcement from the Government of Canada

Great news for our US and International participants!

It was announced this week that American citizens and permanent residents of the United States, who currently reside in the U.S. and who qualify as fully vaccinated travellers, will be able to enter Canada for discretionary travel starting August 9.

And, on September 7, 2021, provided that the domestic epidemiologic situation remains favourable, the Government intends to open Canada's borders to international fully vaccinated travellers who have completed the full course of vaccination with a Government of Canada-accepted vaccine at least 14 days prior to entering Canada and who meet specific entry requirements.

We look forward to welcoming our international participants to the Banff Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K.
