 The first Canmore Strides Run Streak is here! It all began eight years ago in Calgary as a way of encouraging runners to stay active over the busy holiday season, the Strides Run Streak has quickly turned into one of Strides most anticipated events of the year…so… let’s bring it to Canmore and come STREAKING with us! It’s pretty simple and actually involves keeping your clothes on. Register (for free) and join us as we burn off Holiday calories and fight the winter blues by running at least 1 mile per day (or longer) or skiing 2 miles a day, every day in December. We will also be using ‘The Streak’ as a fundraiser for the Bow Valley Food Bank and ask that you make a donation in lieu of a registration fee. To participate, please be interactive – post your runs, photos, comments, etc. on Facebook, Instagram or twitter showing your participation in ‘The Streak’ (#stridesrunstreak) and win fabulous weekly prizes. Let’s have some fun together this holiday season and stay a little fitter in the company of good friends and great times.




Join us to kick off the STRIDES STREAK personal challenge to run/walk a mile a day for the month of December. The “New Balance Lager Mile” will help you get started.  Run a mile from the store to the Brewery, drink a beer and enjoy the company of other streakers!...
