The Canadian Forces Award of Aerobic Excellence was established in 1970 to promote an active and healthy lifestyle for all serving members. Through tracking of physical activity, members can accumulate units of aerobic activity that will qualify them for one of the 6 colored seals in the 7 levels of the program. Each colored seal represents 2000 units of aerobic activity. Upon completion of 2000 units the member can complete their application and receive a personalized certificate containing the appropriate seal and level. Additional seals and levels can be achieved throughout the military member’s career as they continue with the program.
Military members registered in the Navy 10K Run Virtual Series can use the event’s Total Kilometer tracking feature, the AAE Activity Log and/or their own spreadsheet to track their aerobic units. Once 2000 aerobic units have been accumulated they can fill out the AAE Application Form and present it to their local PSP Fitness and Sports staff to receive their certificate. The official policy document and above mentioned forms can be found HERE
The Navy 10K Run Virtual Series can assist military participants with the application submission process. If you have questions or do not have access to local PSP Fitness and Sports staff, please contact Navy10KRun@gmail.com for assistance with your application.
