The Hypothermic Half Marathon has become an annual fundraising event for Nature Alberta. Twice every February more than 200 racers run 21 km, along the scenic Edmonton River Valley. For each race, at least 50 volunteers are required. These volunteers act as race marshals, ensuring runners are safe, following the route, preventing collisions with local traffic, helping those that may become injured, providing hydration and encouragement for all the runners.
This event is a reminder that we can enjoy the outdoors and be active in Alberta’s most prominent season. Our volunteers make it possible! This year’s races take place on February 12 and 26, 2017.
This is a great way to show your support for Nature Alberta! It’s also a great opportunity to get outside, meet new people, enjoy the thrill of the race and cheer on participants. Our volunteers also enjoy hot chocolate along the route and complimentary brunch at the Highlands Gold Club.
How does this help Nature Alberta?
Proceeds raised at this event are generously donated by The Running Room to Nature Alberta. In 2015, this event raised approximately $6000 to support Nature Alberta’s projects; all of which help to create awareness of the importance of and appreciation for Alberta’s nature and biodiversity.

In 1970, six natural history clubs joined together to form the Federation of Alberta Naturalists. Today, this same organization, known as Nature Alberta serves a membership of over 40 clubs and represents thousands of individuals across the province. Every one of these individuals share a passion for natural history.
