Welcome to the second annual SwimRun Edmonton!

SwimRun is a new, and fast growing endurance sport. Participants race across multiple stages of swimming and running and is typically done working together in two person teams.

The race course highlights all of the beauty and the challenge that the Edmonton river valley has to offer. The race course is roughly 6km of downriver swimming in the North Saskatchewan River, with roughly 17km of running in Edmonton's river valley, spread across 6 different runs and 5 different swims!

Come try out SwimRun with the first race of it's kind in northern Alberta. We have divisions for male, female, and mixed teams, as well as the option to do it solo. If you'd like to try a team, but don't know anyone who would want to do this with you, we can help play matchmaker!

Start looking for a partner, and sign up for 2021!
