Edmonton 10K, presented by lululemon, extends runners’ high with post-race party

EDMONTON, AB – On your mark, get set, go! On Saturday, July 22, an impressive field of elites including 2 Olympians will lead a sold-out field of 5,000 enthusiastic runners on their way in the first Edmonton 10K, presented by lululemon. The scenic course goes through the heart of the city, across High Level Bridge, along Saskatchewan Drive, through Windsor Park and finishes with a party at South Bandshell Park, Alberta Legislature Grounds.

A charitable event, the Edmonton 10K will support lululemon’s social impact program, Here To Be charities Little Warriors and Wellspring Edmonton.

The newest addition to Canada Running Series sold out in 13 hours and attracted a strong field of elite athletes across the country, including Canadian Olympians, competing for top prize, worth $2000 in both the women’s and men’s competition.

ELITE ATHLETES

Two-time Canadian Olympic marathoner, Reid Coolsaet, leads an excellent group of racers and expects a battle with fellow Speed River Track Club member Evan Esselink and Calgary’s Trevor Hofbauer. Sasha Gollish of Toronto, the 2015 Pan Am Games 1,500m bronze medalist has been on a tear over the longer distances lately. She won the Banque Scotia 21k de Montreal and also the Canadian Half Marathon title over Vancouver’s Dayna Pidhoresky. But four weeks later the positions were reversed when Pidhoresky beat her rival by two minutes at the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon. Coming home third in Vancouver was Cold Lake’s Emily Setlack who represented Canada at the World Half-marathon Championships in Valencia.
