The Races

Races included a half-marathon, half-marathon walk, 10 km and 5 km.  The “5 km Vet Walk” was truly special.  This was an opportunity to converse, help, learn and ultimately be hand-in-hand with participating young and old Veterans.  We really thinkit was something special and we hope many of you participate in it in years to come.

Registration includes completion medal and post-race food.

5 KM VETWALK

This is something special.  We believe the conversation of our Canadian Forces, RCMP and retired Veterans needs to be year round and not just around Remembrance Day.  This event will allow participants to directly walk, converse, learn and ultimately support our Canadian Veterans.  We will be having Veterans, young and old, from the different Veterans branches (Army, Navy, Air Force and RCMP) participating in this event and all of us within the YQR Vet Run race organization look forward to this opportunity to host such a special event.  This 5km route will be the same as for this event.

Family Run : Saturday April 25, 2020 @ 1:00 P.M.

All of us at the YQR VetRun hope to see you out on race day and very much look forward to putting on an amazing event in support of our Canadian Veterans.
