Remembrance Row


Canada Army Run and the Royal Canadian Legion have partnered to bring a new way to honour and remember those who served.

In 2017, we are introducing Remembrance Row, a section along the course showcasing signs of veterans who have passed away. These veterans are connected to you the participants, and we are calling on you for submissions.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Submissions will be open until Monday, August 21, 2017 or until our maximum has been reached. At this point the form will be closed/unavailable.

We thank all that nominate someone for being part of this, and we hope this becomes another reason why Canada Army Run is No Ordinary Race.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

  • An image of the veteran
  • Along Colonel By Drive, beside the Rideau Canal
  • This row will be part of all events visible from 5K to Half Marathon distances
  • Approximately 500 metres in length for the inaugural year
  • For 2017, a minimum of 100 will be created
  • Signs will be used in future years, with the plan to add more each year

Submissions will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • First-come, first-served
  • Image quality, to ensure the image used is respectful to the departed veteran
