YOUR HEALTH - YOUR HEART - YOUR LIFE.
The Heartbeat Run Series
Started as an opportunity to promote heart health and the prevention of heart disease through an active lifestyle, the Heartbeat Run Series has events in Edmonton, Saskatoon and Calgary. Individuals and teams can choose to participate in the 10k Run, 5k Walk/Run and 1k Fun Run. An ideal event for both families who want to enjoy the fall weather and experienced runners looking to wrap up their season with a chip-timed race – the Heartbeat Run has become the last great run of the year.
This may be your year to walk or run! Individuals who've experienced a previous cardiac event are encouraged to participate – there is a distance for everyone.*
Each event serves as a fundraiser – helping to raise awareness and funds to support all aspects of cardiovascular care. We encourage you to share the experience with family, friends and co-workers. Together, we can make every step count!
