Ever want to race down a runway? The RCAF run is your annual chance to take off with the Royal Canadian Air Force. Choose between three timed races or the family fun walk/run and a day of active fun.

The three timed races cover a 5K, a 10K and, an individual or two-person relayed half marathon route, all of which are certified by the Manitoba’s Runner Association. Each route will take you through the flight line and Canadian Forces Base Winnipeg before you cross the finish line.

All event routes take participants along the RCAF flight line past a display of aircraft and equipment. Registration in any event permits access to the Race Village and permits participants to visit static aircraft and displays and meet with members of the Royal Canadian Air Force.
