In light of the announcement by the Alberta government regarding Covid19,
we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Moonlight Run, which was to be held on March 21.
We know the Moonlight Run is an event that people look forward to year-round, but the health and safety of our participants,
volunteers and community must come first.
More details here or click the Cancellation tab- **Updated info Mar. 25/2020
We are so sorry that the 2020 Moonlight was cancelled due to COVID-19!
In an effort to carry on the spirit of the event, we will be hosting a virtual Moonlight Run. Registered participants will be able to run or walk their own 6k or 10k route and log their time.
You must run or walk your route and log your time between noon Saturday, March 21st and midnight on April 5th. The virtual run is based on the honour system of posting genuine times. Medals will be awarded to the top 5 runners in each category of the virtual race; winners will be announced on April 6th. You can run the course of your choice, or on a treadmill (yay, no hills!). Login in here with the user name and password included in your email search for your name and confirm it is you by checking the distance, age category and gender before posting your time. Please note you will only be able to post your time ONCE. Should you decide to change distance or need to correct you age category or gender you have the option to do so on the posting screen. If you need assistance please contact us here by email or text. If you did not receive the email please email here and provide name entered to obtain login info.
We will be posting complete results here after the completion of the virtual run and both Finisher Certificates and Age Category winner Certificates will be available. Results will also be texted out after the vitual run closes.
PLEASE maintain Social Distancing and be Safe!
Like every year, we have drawn names for a list of door prizes. Check here to see if you have won a prize!
Prizes can be collected at Runner's Soul.
With the changing COVID-19 situation please call Runner's Soul in advance to ensure they are open (403-327-2241).
If they close, prizes will be available once they reopen.
Those who ordered shirts will still receive them when Alberta Health Services lifts the restrictions on group gatherings.
Apologies for inconvenience, will post here when situation changes.
Thank you again for registering to participate in the 2020 Moonlight Run. We appreciate your support and your patience in these difficult days. As you already know, due to the evolving situation with COVID-19 virus and the recommendations of the Government of Alberta and Alberta Health Services, we made the difficult decision to cancel this years’ Moonlight Run.
**COMPENSATION UPDATE - Mar 25/2020
In consideration of feedback we have received over the past week, the volunteer Moonlight Run Organizing Committee has decided to alter the means of compensation communicated in the email sent on March 17. Instead of offering a discount to the 2021 Moonlight Run, we are able to offer a partial refund. Due to the late cancellation of the event, expenses such as shirts, awards, bibs and timing chips had already been incurred therefore the amount we can return to participants is $10 per adult entry and $5 per youth entry. Those who ordered shirts will still receive them when Alberta Health Services lifts the restrictions on group gatherings. For those who would prefer to have their refund amount donated, we have been advised by the local COVID-19 response team that donations to the Soup Kitchen (who are coordinating with the Lethbridge Food Bank, the Interfaith Food Bank, My City Cares, The Salvation Army, and the two School Divisions to provide access to food for low income families) are most urgent for those in our community. Should you choose the donation option, your refund amount will be donated to this important cause. While we are a non-profit organization, we are not a charity and are unable to issue charitable tax receipts.
Please visit the following link by April 15 to indicate your choice of either a partial refund or donation: Please login with the uer name and password we sent to entrants by email ( if you did not receive it please contact us here )
Please be patient as all refunds must be processed individually. If we do not hear back from you by April 15, we will assume that you are ok with us donating all remaining funds to the Soup Kitchen.
Thanks again to all participants for your continued support, feedback, and patience during this difficult time. We’ve enjoyed seeing comments from those who have already completed their Virtual Moonlight Run and look forward to seeing many more over the next week and a half.
Take care, everyone.

Moonlight Run sweatshirts, youth t-shirts and race bibs have already been ordered. Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold race package pickup at the usual time, because of the public health concerns. We will notify all registered participants when we are able to safely distribute bibs and shirts to those who have ordered them. We will not be able to mail shirts to out of town registrants.
