Welcome to the sixth 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 courses highlight all of the beauty and the challenge that the Edmonton river valley has to offer. 

Come try out SwimRun with the largest SwimRun race in Canada, and the race voted 2nd best in North America by SwimRun.com. We have two race distances, with 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!
