Army 10K Presented by the Loyal Edmonton Regiment

The Edmonton Marathon is thrilled to feature the ARMY 10K race, proudly presented by The Loyal Edmonton Regiment, a distinguished Primary Reserve infantry unit of the Canadian Forces. Known affectionately as the “Loyal Eddies,” this regiment is based at the Jefferson Armoury in Edmonton and holds the honor of being Alberta’s first infantry unit, with roots dating back to 1908. The Loyal Edmonton Regiment boasts a storied history, having been deployed overseas during both World Wars, and has continued its legacy through participation in UN and NATO operations worldwide, as well as numerous domestic missions in support of Canadians.

The 10k race, which is part of the main Edmonton Marathon event, is great for beginners and a good test of a seasoned runner’s fitness.
