The Women's Soap Run


You might have noticed a few changes around here and are wondering if you are in the right spot... You are!

The Rocky Mountain Soap Women's Run & Walk is now The Women's Soap Run. It's the same incredible Canmore experience that you've grown to know and love, with a brand new name and look. The Women’s Soap Run was initially started in Canmore in order to:

– Create safe, fun and inclusive events for women, that inspire the pursuit of an active, healthy and environmentally responsible lifestyle.

– Build a community platform that offers knowledge and expertise of selected professionals, as well as supports charitable organizations both culturally and financially.

The event involves a healthy post-race reception, well-being stations along the course, a non-competitive atmosphere and amazing swag that will make this event an unforgettable experience for women of all ages and fitness levels. We look forward to seeing you at our 2024 race!


Our story of inspiration 

Here is Jane’s story. She is a major inspiration for the run and our goal is to get more people like Jane to live an active & healthy lifestyle.

“I started running in June 2007, just before my 48th birthday. I could not run to the end of the street (about 100 meters) without stopping at least 3 times. The next year I completed my very first half marathon. Running has become very important to me. It has helped me transform myself in body and mind.

Running has given me so much confidence in myself. It has taught me that I can do anything that life throws at me. It has taught me that I am capable of pushing myself past what I thought my limits were both physically and mentally. It has given me a whole new outlook on life. Anyone can do it. Start walking or running and bring yourself health and happiness. I love to run and am really looking forward to the next Woman’s Soap Run.”

“It’s inspiring to see how running brings women together and how many women’s lives have been positively impacted by running. This run is a testament to women and the power of running. The run was an incredible experience in a spectacular setting with amazing women!”

“This race keeps getting better every year! I’ve participated since it’s inception, either in the shorter distance or the 1/2 marathon events. It’s an inclusive gathering which offers challenging opportunities for beginners and seasoned runners, has super scenic routes, fabulous food, and great swag.”
