 WELCOME TO CANADA ARMY RUN


No ordinary race. People run, walk or roll in Canada Army Run for many different reasons. Some are trying to break records or achieve personal bests.  Some come in memory of parents or grandparents who spent their careers in the military, or of loved ones who lost their lives in the line of duty. Many are honouring sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, or mothers and fathers who are in the military today. Others come to salute Canada’s injured soldiers who participate in the 5K and half marathon events and demonstrate for all the true spirit of “soldiering on”. And thousands of others come to simply thank the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces for all they do at home and abroad.
