Canada Army Run

Canada Army Run

September 18, 2016
5k, Half-marathon

Race Information

This event is unique from start to finish!

It includes cannons used as starter's pistol, "dog-tag" medals for participants, military bands, military equipment display, pasta dinner served military style, military inspired kid's zone, technical t-shirts sporting the Canadian Army camouflage pattern and lots more!

But above all, this event is about Canadians and Canadian Forces (Air, Army and Navy) joining together as a community. It’s a chance for the troops to thank Canadians for their support. It is also an opportunity for Canadians to say thanks to the men and women who serve them at home and abroad.

Top Tips for this Event

Bring your kids to the Kids' Zone, there will be plenty of fun activities: sitting in an Army truck, obstacle courses and much more!
The Canada Army Run allows ill, injured and disabled runners to walk, run, or roll the courses. Participants will receive a 15 minute start prior to the mass start.
The traditional pre-race pasta dinner served military-style is an event not to be missed, but it often gets sold out, so book early.

Course Information

No qualifying time is required to run either of the courses in the Canada Army Run. The courses are both scenic and flat and would be ideal for beginners and those looking to achieve a personal best time.
