The Edmonton Police Foundation has a long history of presenting races with the Edmonton Police Service including the Finest 10k and the Edmonton Police Service Half Marathon. We are building off the success of these past events with the brand new EPS Half Marathon!

Since 2001, EPF has been dedicated to promoting excellence in community policing to maintain a healthy and happy community. The EPS Half Marathon will not only bring together runners and walkers from Edmonton and beyond, but will help to raise valuable funds to ensure that Edmonton is a safe city in which to live and work.

On September 11th, 2022, we invite runners and walkers of all abilities and fitness levels to join us at the Alberta Legislature Grounds for the EPS Half marathon. There is a half marathon as well as 10km and 5km routes to make it inclusive for everyone. Not a runner? You can still come out to enjoy the EPS festival taking place at the park. There is something for everyone!

When you sponsor the EPS Half Marathon you are helping to purchase the best trained and skilled police dogs for the canine unit, create effective and forward-thinking solutions to community problems and support engagement to greatly increase positive interactions between our police and community members. Your support will have a significant impact on community safety and wellness in Edmonton.

EPS Half Marathon Race Rules:

  1. For the safety and enjoyment of all participants, pets, bicycles, wagons, roller blades, skateboards, hand cycles, motorized vehicles, motorized wheelchairs, unregistered runners, strollers, baby joggers, running with headphones or ear buds, are not allowed.
  2. Most of the race takes place using the Edmonton River Valley Park trail system.  The path will not be closed to the public and therefore expect to share the path with other users.  Runners should remain on the right side of the divided path throughout the race.  In the instance where runners are required to use residential roads, they must follow the direction of the race marshal, keeping to the right of the road as indicated or directed by race marshal, and be aware of possible road traffic.
  3. The EPS Half Marathon will be using a colour coded Event Alert System (EAS) to communicate the status of course conditions to participants, event staff, leading up to and on race day.
