For The Media

We welcome all media who plan to cover the Canada Army Run race events and related activities leading up to and including Army Run Weekend. Please feel free to contact us at media@armyrun.ca.

  • 2017 Canada Army Run, presented by BMO Bank of Montreal: Sunday, September 17, 2017
  • 2017 is the 10th anniversary of Canada Army Run
  • Participants may walk, run or roll in five events:
    • 5K, presented by General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada
    • 10K, in partnership with Canada 150
    • Half-marathon
    • Vimy Challenge, in partnership with Veterans Affairs Canada (where participants run, walk or roll officially in BOTH the 5K and 10K events)
    • Commander’s Challenge (where participants run, walk or roll officially in BOTH the 5K and half-marathon events)
  • Canada Army Run is unlike any other event in the country. From the cannon used as a “starter’s pistol” to the “dog-tag” medals all finishers receive, Canada Army Run is “military” in flavour from start to finish
  • The success of Canada Army Run to date has exceeded all expectations and has become one of the fastest growing runs in Canada
  • In addition to participants, tens of thousands line the streets to cheer on those running, walking or rolling
  • Slogan: “No ordinary race”
  • Proceeds and fundraising efforts are directed to: Soldier On and the Support our Troops funds
