Edmonton Police Foundation Half Marathon
The EPF Half Marathon is an annual half, 10k, and 5k run that kicks off the spring running season. The run supports a number of local charitable initiatives.
The race started in the early spring of 2008 when two Constables within the Edmonton Police Service came together due to a common interest and passion for running. After having participated in numerous athletic events the question arose as to why Edmonton didn't have a spring half marathon to kick off the race season.
After much research a proposal was put together and presented to the Edmonton Police Foundation. From that day on the race literally took off. An organizing committee which consisted of sworn and non-sworn employees of the Edmonton Police Service was formed for the Edmonton Police Foundation Half Marathon (EPFHM) and 5km Run/Walk.
