Gaining Momentum

Alberta Run the River started in 2021 in Edmonton with a small group of dedicated road runners taking part. Since then, amidst Covid19 restrictions and beyond, this road race has bloomed into over 1000 participants annually and includes a Mini Legends kids event. We’re excited to bring Run the River across our province in the years to come.

Alberta Run the River is managed and sanctioned by Athletics Alberta.
