Canada Army Run – September 23, 2018
September 23, 2018
When: September 23
Where: Begins at Ottawa City Hall
What: The Canada Army Run consists of a
half-marathon, 10K and 5K run which attracts
military and civilian runners, walkers and
spectators from around the world. 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
Canadian 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.
The 5K race is open to families with strollers,
however, they are asked to start at the back.
