April 7, 2020 Update Regarding COVID-19
First off we all wish you and your families well during these unique and very challenging times.
Together we, extend a BIG THANK YOU to all the front line professionals for what they are doing.
When you can, send them a thank you or help provide them some assistance.
Planning for something like the Edmonton Marathon is a constantly changing process. With almost 5 months before the event, on the weekend of August 15-16, 2020, we want to provide you a current update recognizing we are living in challenging and unprecedented times.
We will continue to closely monitor the communication being sent out by experts...and as things continue to evolve, we will adapt and adjust.
Stay safe and we will get through this together,
The "friendly" marathon
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.
