Canada Army Run is proud to announce our new finish line at the National War Memorial. Located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, this iconic landmark will greet you at the end of your 5K or 10K journey. It brings together the landmark features of a Canada Army Run event, with the importance and symbolism of military history and culture.
Unveiled in 1939, it is a symbol that honours Canadians who fought and sacrificed in war. It also includes the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and is the site of the national Remembrance Day ceremony.
A special thank you to our partners at Veterans Affairs Canada, the City of Ottawa, The NCC, and all of our valued partners who have helped make this possible.
We invite you to take part in this historic year, and hope to see you cross the Finish Line with us on September 18!
