With just over two weeks to go until the third annual Canada Army Run, registration has already passed last year’s total of 11,000.
The race, held Sept. 19, includes a half-marathon and 5K event, as well as an event for injured soldiers.
Run by the same people who organize Ottawa Race Weekend, the Army Run is “the fastest-growing run in Canada, possibly North America,” said Run Ottawa president John Halvorsen.
Last year, the event grew more than 50 per cent from the inaugural year, which attracted 7,000 participants. This year, organizers plan to cap registration at 15,000.
