Calling all runners, whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting your running journey, it’s time to mark your calendars for the exhilarating Alberta Run the River event happening on September 24! This unique event brings together running enthusiasts of all skill levels to challenge themselves in 5 km, 10 km, and half marathon distances. Held biannually in both spring and fall, Alberta Run the River is all about encouraging runners to Take the Challenge and push their limits, whether that means levelling up your speed or tackling longer distances.

Choose Your Challenge

One of the exciting aspects of Alberta Run the River is that you get to choose your challenge. Are you up for a speedy 5 km in the spring and want to improve your run time at the Fall Challenge? Or perhaps you’re ready to level up to a 10 km run at the Fall Challenge? Maybe you’re feeling ambitious and want to tackle the half marathon in the spring, then challenge yourself with a better run time in the fall. The choice is yours! Alberta Run the River is all about personal growth and achievement.

Exciting Venue Change

In 2023, Alberta Run the River has teamed up with the Riverhawks and will be starting and finishing the run at Re/Max Field. This exciting change brings several advantages, including ample parking, convenient washroom facilities, and indoor space for participants. Plus, Save-on-Foods is generously sponsoring our post-race BBQ, ensuring that you refuel and recover after your run in style. And if that’s not enough, we’re introducing a post-race beer garden, where you can celebrate your accomplishment with fellow runners.

Scenic Riverside Routes

While the venue may have changed, the breathtaking beauty of the Edmonton river valley remains a constant. Alberta Run the River’s route will still take you along the stunning river valley pathway, offering picturesque views and a serene backdrop for your run.
