The Mike Metcalfe 30 Hour Soccer Marathon is a single, thirty hour game of soccer played by participants in one hour increments. This year's event takes place Friday, November 2nd and Saturday, November 3rd. Each player is asked to raise money for the Calgary Health Trust to help with the purchase of cancer-related diagnostic and treatment equipment for the Foothills Hospital.
The marathon takes place indoors at the Calgary Soccer Centre. This co-ed event encourages a mix of all skill levels and all ages – from families who otherwise don’t get the chance to play together, to individuals who would like a comfortable atmosphere to experience soccer for the first time. Anyone can play and everyone is welcome!
