Run Calgary and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra are back for the second year, collaborating by colliding the wonderful worlds of music and run. Challenge yourself to finish a 8 km Run or a 4 km Walk, in a 4 km looped course along the beautiful Bow River, before the CPO completes 50 minutes of Beethoven’s best music. Participants receive a custom Beat Beethoven wine glass, finishers’ medal and a glass of Taittinger Champagne under the big white tent while enjoying a free concert by the CPO. Friends and family can enjoy the outdoor concert with a donation as Beat Beethoven is a fundraising event for CPO PhilKids. You must be 18 to participate in this event.
