Remembrance Row

HONOUR YOUR LOVED ONES THROUGH 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 introduced 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 called on you for submissions. We hope this becomes another reason why Canada Army Run is No Ordinary Race. NOTE: The submission period for Remembrance Row 2018 will open in June 2018. Thank you for your interest in submitting a veteran to be honoured.

  • First and last names of the nominated veteran
  • Element of the Canadian Armed Forces represented (Army, Navy, Air Force)
  • Regiment or Unit
  • 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 2018, a minimum of 100 new signs will be created in addition to the 100 submissions from 2017
  • 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
  • Submission content, including factual information and appropriateness of photo

We are looking for people to assist in this area. You can volunteer for this position here.
