We are entering a team to represent the Edmonton Outdoor Club in the Servus Edmonton Marathon (Walk). For us to meet the group requirement we need a minimum of 6 people which entitles attendees to get a 10% discount off the regular single admission. If we do not have 6 people individuals may be asked to pay the difference on race day. The longer you wait to register the higher the cost so I suggest doing so before the next increase.

  • Until Mar 17 $90 + GST and Administration Fee
  • Until May 26 $99 + GST and Administration Fee
  • Until Jul 14 $108 + GST and Administration Fee
  • Until Aug 15 $117 + GST and Adminstration Fee
  • I have set up a team called 'Edmonton Outdoor Club'. When registering you must enter the name of the team and specify you are a member, I have set up as the captain. When registering you also must choose the 42 KM RUN/WALK MARATHON TEAM EVENT (this is not for any other type of the Marathon that is being offered).

    Please be advised that I am setting up this event as a group event but there should be no expectation that we finish as a group. Participants can go at their own pace but please be advised that if you do not complete the first 21 KM in 4 hours a race official will remove you from the Marathon and you will be given half marathon credit. This means that you must walk at a minimum pace of 5.25 KM/hour for the first 4 hours.

    As this is an independent event all registering and paying for the event must be done through the Servus Edmonton Marathon website. Please do not sign up for this event with the Edmonton Outdoor Club until you have confirmed your registration with the Servus Edmonton Marathon and paid the fee. As captain I can see who is registered and will need to move you to the waitlist until I see that you have signed up with the Servus Edmonton Marathon.

    There is a lot of information on the Marathon website so I will leave it to each participant to do their own research on Marathon route, times, where to pick up your kit....etc.

    To Register for the Servus Edmonton Marathon you will be prompted to create an account. Once an account is created choose the 42KM Marathon Run/Walk Team Event and then choose walk/run from the drop down menu. I did not get additional tickets for the brunch nor did I join the Saturday free event. Please also choose the 6+ hours to complete option.

    As I live in Calgary I will not be hosting any training events. I encourage you to get out and work yourself up to the distance. Last year we attempted to train on pavement but it seemed to make it worse and we found it best to just show up on marathon day and get it done. Iím not suggesting not training, just not on pavement but the choice is yours.

    Any questions send me a text.

    See our regular weekly hikes, and upcoming out of town events on our calendar for some training opportunities with other volunteers (Also ask Mark about his training options through the year).

    Required Items to Bring:
  • Please refer to the Servus Edmonton Marathon Website (including proper footwear)
  • Can do attitude!
  • Recommended Items to Bring:
    Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

    How to Get There:
    Event Directions:We will meet outside the Shaw Conference Centre Downtown at 5:45 sharp on the sidewalk next to Jasper Ave. I don't believe the LRT will be running at this time. There will be a lot of people trying to find parking so please plan ahead.

    This hike will be entirely on pavement for a long distance. Please ensure to have proper footwear.
    - We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines at all times while participating in EOC events.
    - Please scroll through and read the entire online waiver when you sign up.
    - Details of this event are subject to undergo a change at any point in time, with or without warning.
