    Your sentence is only correct with the "if." And if you drop the "or not." And with a capital letter to start it and a period to end it.

    Hello tetedd, and welcome to Using English.

    It's easier to answer questions when you give more context.

    They go there every day, even when it rains.
    They will go there, even if it is raining.
    They went, even though it was raining.

    There are a lot of ways to use "even."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
