If you are still thinking about registering for the 2019 Canada Army Run, there is still time!
With just days left until the largest running events in the country, volunteers, event organizers and racers are busy getting ready for this year’s event at their new location.
It was announced in May that the race would be moving from Ottawa City Hall to the Canadian War Museum.
Michael Timmerman, Canada Army Run communications manager, said the entire Canada Army Run Team is looking forward to welcoming racers, spectators and volunteers to the three-day race on September 20 through 22.
“The team is really looking forward to welcoming folks to our new location to experience all the traditional Army Run mainstays, the military equipment display, and all the on-site activities for the whole family,” said Timmerman.
Event organizers are expecting, and are on track to have similar numbers of participants as 2018.
The Canada Army Run Team has been working hard to create a smooth transition to the new location and already have ideas to grow and expand the well-anticipated event.
“Feedback on our new location for 2019 at the Canadian War Museum has been overwhelmingly positive, both in terms of participants as well as from partners and stakeholders,” says Timmermans. “The Canadian War Museum has been a terrific host and a tremendous partner throughout the entire planning process.”
The 2019 race will allow half marathon runners to pass through the National Military Cemetery at Beechwood. That is just one of the many ways the run honours those who have served our country.
Runners who haven’t registered have until September 21 to do so. The 10K Youth Run, Normandy Challenge, 10K Ill and Injured Race, and the Commanders Challenge are already sold out. However, there are many other races people can register and participate. Visit the Army Run website for more information.
