Edmonton Spring Challenge

April 28 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

Challenge 5km, 10 km  and 1/2 Marathon Road Race & Juniors Event

Run the River races happen in the spring and fall. Challenge yourself to run longer, faster, stronger with each race!

We’ve partnered with the Riverhawks and will be starting and finishing the run in Re/Max Field. It’s a very exciting change with plenty of parking, washrooms and indoor space. We’re working on some awesome post race food options that will be included with your entry fee. And beer. We will have a post race beer garden! We will still be running on the pathway along the beautiful river valley.

UPDATE!  We are changing the 5km route to reduce congestion on the 10km and half marathon course. The 5km will still start and finish inside Re/Max stadium and be a direct out and back BUT, once hitting the river path, the 5km route will go east instead of west. This change also allows us to make the 5km stroller and pet friendly! On leash pets are welcome in the 5km and inside the stadium.

Juniors Event

Bring the kids to Run the River to experience both our Mini Legends and Run Like a Legend programs! We will have a few Mini Legends stations set up in the stadium so your littles can try their hand at physical literacy AND short run. Your kids are welcome to visit the stations and do the activities; start time is 10 a.m. for the kids programming. The program will last approximately one hour.  Our Legendary Crew will take the kids through the stations and the mini run. Of course, we’ll have a little prize for their participation. Please ensure a responsible adult is on hand while your child enjoys this event. Sign them up at the registration link for this fun offering from Athletics Alberta. Come run, jump, and throw with us!
