Sunday, August 21st 2022 SOLD OUT!

2022 Elite Program

Welcome, high-performance athletes!

We offer support to elite Canadian and international athletes who want to race in our Marathon, Half-Marathon, or Army 10K events. 

After a challenging two years dealing with the covid-19 pandemic, we are ecstatic to be back hosting an in-person event, although it means making some adjustments. Due to a limited budget, all Elite applications will be reviewed and approved on an individual basis, with complimentary entry fee and limited financial support for travel and accommodation (see below).

We hope you will join us for the opportunity to run a stunning fast, flat course with an exciting downtown start and finish in the heart of Edmonton, Alberta’s capital city!
