New Canada Army Run shirt designs set the tone for the upcoming edition

Ottawa, Ontario - In a few short months, on September 10th, Canada Army Run Virtual will kick off its 2021 edition. For the second year in a row, the run won’t begin at the Canadian War Museum nor in Canada’s Capital, Ottawa, but rather, anywhere and everywhere as it is virtual. Being part of this virtual event is exciting, however, it is also quite different from the in-person event held on the streets of Ottawa-Gatineau. Keeping that in mind, the event is committed to ensuring that the participants get the full Canada Army Run experience.
