Run bowness 2023 — sponsored by bloomculture
It was a Run Bowness for the books as we welcomed over 320 runners, walkers, and rollers to the BCA for a race through beautiful Bowness and Baker Parks.
The streets were lined with friends, family, and neighbours cheering the competitors on, and we all met together at the finish line for a post-race celebration with live music, a beer garden, and pancakes from the Bowness Lion’s Club!
Thank you to our 2023 title sponsor Bloom Culture for helping make the day possible, along with all of the businesses and organizations who contributed to the event: Bowness Lion’s Club, Bowness Soapworks, Car Star, City of Calgary, CPS, Planet Foods, The Rocking Kings, Running Room, Small Bits of Happiness, Startline Timing, St. John’s Ambulance, WayBack Burgers, Yoga in Bowness, and 7-11 in Bowness.
This year’s Run Bowness would not have been possible without an incredible showing of volunteers. Thank you Bownesians for coming together to make events like these possible in our incredible community! We appreciate you and are so grateful for you. A special thanks also goes to BCA Volunteer and Event Coordinator Laddie Trithara for coordinating this year’s event.
Whether your goal was to cross the finish line, set a personal best, or finish in the podium places — congratulations you on your accomplishment!
