Canadian Army Run

Canada Army Run

The Canada Army Run is back up and running and Color Right Now is running along with you as a key supplier of racing bibs, banners, signs, flags, tear drop flags, course markers & backdrops for Ottawa marathons as well as marathons all over Canada.

Wave starts help ensure a safe start, so that not everyone is starting the race at the same time. The wave starts are organized by “corrals,” which are a way to group participants of similar speed and to assist in moving everyone into the race gradually. When you registered, you declared your anticipated finishing time; this determines which corral you will be part of. Your corral will be indicated on your bib when you pick it up. No matter which wave you are in, however, you will get your accurate race time because of the “timing chips” that are embedded into your bib.

To spread the field out at the start, runners will be sent off in a series of waves starting with the blue corral, followed by orange, yellow, green, purple and red corrals.

Each corral will be sent off approximately every two minutes. As one corral/wave sets off, the next corral will be brought forward to the start line and directed to wait until given the signal to start. This process will continue until all corrals/waves have left.

Soldier On Wave – Open to Military & Civilian Participants

Canada Army Run is proud to recognize and celebrate the achievements of participants with visible and non-visible conditions or injuries, who demonstrate for all the true meaning of “soldiering on”.

All participants in these categories start prior to the mass start of each event. Family, supporters or caretakers may participate in the same wave (please indicate your category as “support” when registering).

For visually impaired athletes, please reach out to us at [email protected] to receive a registration code for your guide to register at no additional cost.
