Since its inaugural year in 1986, the Navy 10K Run has seen 1000's of participants show their support for the men and women of the Royal Canadian Navy, Canadian Armed Forces and their families. Participants have run, walked, jogged and wheeled their way through the north end of Halifax while being cheered on by friends, family and other supporters. There are 1.25K and 2.5K runs within CFB Halifax for ages 14 and under. There are 5K and 10K races through the north end of Halifax for ages 8 and up. Registration is open to both military and civilian competitors. Official chip timings for the event will be provided by Atlantic Chip Timing. PSP Halifax is proud to organize the Navy 10K Run each year to celebrate the spirit of competition and promote active living within the military community.
