The First Responders Half Marathon is a highly regarded event that takes place annually in Edmonton, Calgary and Saskatoon each year. We are excited to expand awareness of all First Responders and the challenges they face in our communities. It's our honour to host you in the Half Marathon, 10km, 5km or 1km fun run.
Short endurance races, half marathons are a great course-length to test your ability to run a modest, achievable distance. Whereas a full marathon pushes a typical runner past the point of exhaustion, requiring on-course fuelling, long-haul mindsets and perfect pacing plans, a halfer can be done with a bit of water and a “take yourself to the edge of you ability” approach. Run hard, run long. Run. I typically hit the two hour and change mark, but my crew is plus or minus 30 minutes on that pace.
Leading Edge Physiotherapy RunWild is a challenging, competitive, and fun event with races designed for every level of runner and walker. Events include the 5km, 10km, Half Marathon and WildOnes Kids MaraFun. Don’t forget to check out the Race Village, which includes a kids’ fun zone, live entertainment, food and beverages and much more.
Approachable, accessible, good-natured, this is the marathon where you will feel right at home. No intimidation here, we make it more personal, more genuine, more fun. Hey, it’s the Edmonton way. Marathoners say even our course is a bit friendlier - flat and fast to get you to that finish line with a strong qualifying time or a personal best. And our full-on marathon weekend features special ways to connect with your friends and other runners. Come meet your friends, and make some new ones, in Edmonton.
