WELCOME TO CANADA ARMY RUN – THE FASTEST GROWING RUN IN CANADA!
It’s great to have you join us! And, whether you’re participating in the half marathon or 5K, we know you’re in for a very special experience!
Not only do the courses take you past scenic sites in Canada’s Capital – which is beautiful in September – Canada Army Run is unlike any other run in the country.
In fact, this event has become the fastest growing run in Canada! In less than six years, the number of participants has more than tripled, from 7,000 in the 2008 inaugural run to more than 22,000 in 2013.
From the cannon used as a “starter’s pistol” to the “dog-tag” medals soldiers place around all participants necks at the finish line, this unique event is “military” from start to finish. More than anything, though, Canada Army Run, is about Canadians and the Canadian Armed Forces – Air Force, Army, and Navy – joining together in the spirit of camaraderie and community. It’s a chance for the troops to extend the military esprit de corps to Canadians and to thank them for their support. And, it’s an opportunity for Canadians to say thanks to the men and women who serve them in so many ways at home and abroad.
