Love is Love Mile

Like all Run Calgary events, this is an inclusive event open and welcome to everyone. The Love is Love Mile celebrates our individuality and we encourage you to show up and just be you.

Part of Calgary Pride's B!G Pride 2021

Our goals are many... to bring two exceptional communities together, fundraise for Calgary Pride, make fitness more accessible to the LGBTQ2S+ (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer Two-Spirit +) community and finally to further a culture of learning and allyship in the running community.

Event Info −


The idea for the Love is Love Mile goes back a few years and while it was never meant to be a virtual event, Run Calgary and Calgary Pride didn't want to wait to bring more love to this wonderful city so we launched it in 2020 to help celebrate the 30th anniversary of Calgary Pride. We are still working out the details for the 2021 edition and can't wait to bring it to you in-person soon!

In-Person date: Coming in 2022!

Virtual Race Window coincides with Calgary Pride Week: August 27 to September 5

RUNtalks with Calgary Pride

Check out this 1-hour RUNtalks Breaking down Gender Barriers in Sport (it's like TED talks but for runners!) It was recorded in September of 2020 and features James Demers (he/him) who was Executive Director of Calgary Queer Arts Society at the time of this recording and Victoria Bucholtz (she/her) a teacher at Mount Royal University, entertainment producer, drag queen and runner. This TEDtalks is facilitated by Run Calgary Executive Director, Kirsten Fleming.

We are planning for both an in-person race and virtual event in 2021. More details will become available in the summer of 2021.
