Hear that? It’s the sound of happy feet downtown and in community streets for the 2022 Servus Edmonton Marathon, the 31st running. Yes, “The Friendly Marathon” is back live and in-person and we’re so excited!

In 2019, the last non-virtual event, over 5,000 participants came from near and far—runners, walkers, and amputee longboarders alike. A bonus this year is the long-awaited chance to celebrate the 30th birthday of Edmonton’s beloved event in the style it deserves—together on the streets.

After a lengthy pandemic-imposed break, the event scaled down this year to ensure a manageable restart while keeping its core Marathon, Half-Marathon, and Army 10K distances. Organizers are pleased by the early volume of registrations and are projecting 3,500 eager participants on race day. Servus Credit Union remains committed as title sponsor for its sixth year, and Running Room continues its long run as sponsor and partner since the event’s inception. The Loyal Edmonton Regiment, or “Loyal Eddies,” maintain sponsorship of the Army 10K.

“Whether this is your first or 31st race, we love cheering you on as you accomplish your running goals this year. One of our goals is to make our communities healthier and what better way to do it than the Servus Edmonton Marathon. Together we can support the Edmonton community in becoming more physically, mentally, and financially fit.”

– Ian Burns, President & CEO, Servus Credit Union

“Celebrating over 30 years of fitness, friendships, and festivities, the Edmonton Marathon is back as a live event. Join us in a celebration of your training by running one of the events on the awe-inspiring river valley course with its panoramic views and welcoming neighborhoods. See you at the start line!”

– John Stanton Sr., Founder, Running Room

“We are delighted to be back for our city of runners, walkers, and supporters, and very grateful to the devoted sponsors and volunteers who are making it possible. Happy belated 30th and cheers to the 31st!”

– Tom Keogh, Race Director

The 2022 Servus Edmonton Marathon is a signature summer event and the races and cheering have been part of our city’s story since 1991. Runners love the fast, flat course, historic neighborhoods, and scenic views of our beautiful river valley. The event also has a long history of giving back to the community through charity contributions.
