CAN I GET ANOTHER BIB TAG ON RACE DAY IF I FORGET MINE AT HOME?
No. There will be no replacements made on race morning. No Bib Tag = No Results.

IS MELISSA'S ROAD RACE A FUNDRAISING EVENT?
Melissa's Road Race does not solicit sponsorship dollars.

It is the mandate of our event, to provide for our participants, the very best, hospitality driven, running event in Canada. To that end, Melissa's provides and pays for all the rental items, entertainment, food and beverages, as well as insurance, licenses, t-shirts and cash prizes.

Melissa's Road Race is not a fundraising event but has chosen over the years to donate any profits generated from our road race, back into the community.

For the eighth year in a row, Melissa's Road Race will be donating to the Banff Community Foundation, the Banff High School Green Team and the Banff Community Day Care. This will bring our contributions back to the community to $100,000.00 to date. We are proud to be a supporting partner to our hometown and our vibrant community.

WHY IS THERE A CAP ON THE NUMBER OF RUNNERS?
The 21Km has been capped at 1,500 runners because of quotas imposed by Parks Canada and The Town of Banff. Melissa's Road Race's total cap is 4,500 participants.

IS THERE A WAITING LIST I CAN SIGN UP FOR?
There is no waiting list because we accept 10% more entries than the quota, to address the no-show factor.

DO I NEED A PARK PASS?
Banff National Park Pass

WHAT IF I SEE WILDLIFE ON THE COURSE?
Special Notice: There is a possibility of wildlife encounters along the race courses - if wildlife (bear, elk, cougar, wolf, coyote, deer) is sighted along either the 10Km or the 21Km course, the location of the sighting will be communicated immediately to the RMO. If the race has commenced and the lead vehicle at the head of the race slows, you MUST slow down and stop if required, behind the lead vehicle. DO NOT pass the lead vehicle. In the case of a wildlife situation, the race start may be delayed, or stopped by course marshals, Park Wardens, or RCMP and/or an alternate route will be implemented.
