The Commander's Challenge

The Commander’s Challenge is an event within Canada Army Run where participants run, walk or roll officially in BOTH the 5K, presented by General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada, and half marathon events.

Participants who register for the Commander’s Challenge will receive a unique bib, hat and race shirts (short sleeve and pullover). In addition, upon completion of the Challenge, participants will receive a special coin as well as their dog tag medals.

Participants can register for the Commander’s Challenge by clicking here and choosing the “Commander’s Challenge” category.

We recommend that participants start in the first wave of the 5K at 08:00. After completing the 5K and collecting your dog tag, you may enter the half marathon from any corral wave you wish.

You will have one bib that will work for both events, and will receive a special prize at the end of the race!

** Participants MUST start no later than the last wave of the half marathon to remain in the challenge. Participants who do not return from running the 5K by the last wave of the half marathon will be disqualified. **
