During the race, only participants with a race bib will be allowed on Vermilion Lakes Road, the Legacy Trail and the Bow Valley Parkway.  Please tell your friends and family not to drive, cycle or walk to these areas.  These areas can be narrow and environmentally sensitive so for the safety of everyone please let everyone know not to travel to these sections of the course as they will be denied entry (tell them to sign up for the run next year to gain access!).  The runners are best viewed in town as they start the run and complete the final in-town loop before the finish. There are many great cheering spots here and also many fun things to do in Banff for your family members while they await your return.

For the best cheering spot on course, register as a course marshal Volunteer and you’ll be right on course to cheer your family and friends on! Email volunteers@banffmarathon.com to register as a course marshal!
