Centered on 33rd and 34th Avenues SW between Crowchild Trail and 19th Street SW, Marda Loop is one of Calgary’s most popular outdoor shopping venues. Businesses consist of a vibrant collection of eclectic stores, restaurants and coffee houses. This is a great city run with lots of sights and good people watching. Begin on the corner of 26 Ave SW and 16 St SW and run south down 16 St SW until you reach 33 Ave SW. Turn right and follow that road until you get to 37th St SW (you’ll see AE Cross School on the corner). Take your final right turn onto 26 Ave SW and return to the start. There are numerous public transit options on this route. If you don’t want to look for parking, the light rail may be your best bet.
