dogtagsOne of the many things participants love about Canada Army Run is the “dog-tag” medals they receive when they cross the finish line. These medals are modelled after the official  Canadian Forces identification discs.

When a soldier puts the medal around your neck at the finish line, take the opportunity to thank him or her for all they do to keep Canada safe at home and abroad.

Awards are given out for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for the following categories:

  • 5K – Male / Female
  • 5K Amputee – Male / Female
  • 5K Wheelchair – Male / Female
  • 5K Handcycle – Male / Female
  • 5K Recumbent – Male / Female
