Cheering Station Vote Ballot 2018

Official cheering stations will help get you to the finish line! This year, 14 terrific charity stations (several returning from last year) — as well as local bands — will be positioned at key locations around the 5K, 10K and half marathon courses. Their main goal: to cheer you on and inspire you to the finish line!

The charity cheering stations are also competing for cash prizes to benefit not-for-profit organizations. So, if you are participating in the half marathon, take note of the ones that truly inspire you and vote for your three favourites after the run. (You will receive an email from Canada Army Run that provides a link to the survey, so watch your email inbox!)
