Join us to GET SHIT DONE in 2022!
Calgary's flattest run courses!
The Get Shit Done Race series was started in 2019 because of a dream. With putting on grassroots 5km and 10km events/races, Richelle wanted desperately to take a shot at race directing the half distance. Taking the theme from Rose's famously designed water-bottles, the Get Shit Done Run was born. The goal for the Get Shit Done Run is to have a course where the can GET SHIT DONE and hopefully get a PB, with all 3 courses being extremely flat.
"We cannot thank you enough for your interest in our race. The goal is always to have an extremely well-organized event, a good, easy-to-follow course, great food and atmosphere post-race, and amazing swag! We hope you will join us to GET SHIT DONE!"

COVID – 19 Precautions and Considerations:
The Get Shit Done Run has made the COVID-19 vaccination mandatory for all participants.
Registered participants who are not fully vaccinated* are required to provide a negative COVID-19 test result for a test administered within 72 hours of attending the event. If you have symptoms you must stay home and you should book your test online with the AHS assessment tool or call Health Link at 811.

Additionally, we request participants wear masks while gathering before and after the race. We are implementing these measures to ensure the safety of all participants, volunteers and staff at the event. We are putting these guidelines in place with your health and safety in mind. By implementing mandatory proof of vaccination, it also allows us to be exempt from any restrictions - this includes allowing us to host mass starts!
