About the Run:
From the cannon used as
a “starter’s pistol” to the “dog-tag”
medals soldiers place around all participants necks at the
finish line, this unique event is “military”
from start to finish. More than anything, though, Canada
Army Run, is about Canadians and the Canadian Armed Forces
– Air Force, Army, and Navy – joining together
in the spirit of camaraderie and community. It’s a
chance for the troops to extend the military esprit de corps
to Canadians and to thank them for their support. And, it’s
an opportunity for Canadians to say thanks to the men and
women who serve them in so many ways at home and abroad.

For You Vincent
by Lindsay Richan
Lindsay and Vincent
This past Saturday I took part in the 10th annual
Marchons, Courons Trécesson (http://www.mctrecesson.org/)
which offers a 5km, 10km, 20km and kids 1km/500m for free. I
ran this year’s 10km race in honour of Vincent. Last year
we ran this race together (his first 10km which he absolutely
killed in under 44mins) and had planned to do it again together
this September. It’s an interesting course in that it
involves running on pavement, gravel, grass and single-track
trails with a few sharp turns all while going around Lac Beauchamp.
I woke up to pouring rain that morning but it
could have been -50C and snowing and I still would have ran
it. Somehow the rain held out during the race and it was perfect
running conditions. Physically, I felt great during the race
which isn’t always the case, but mentally it was a different
story. I was not fighting my self-doubt but rather trying to
hold back tears for not having Vincent beside me this time.
I ended up running this race with a good friend from Val d’Or
which brought comfort and I believed saved me from a few full-on
I finished 2nd female in just under 45mins (because it is a
free event it isn’t timed so you will just have to believe
me!), but the result didn't really matter this time. I'm proud
of myself for finishing what I think will be my most mentally
challenging race ever.
For you, Vincent.
