RCAF Virtual Run 2022
The 2022 RCAF Run, May 28-June 19, is virtual this year to allow all Canadians to participate, regardless of location or fitness level, notes Magnus Brier, the organizer of this year’s RCAF Run and the only full-time staff member devoted to the race.
Mr. Brier agreed to an email interview with The Voxair.
“The benefit of a virtual run is that participants can run at a time and locale that is most convenient for them,” he wrote.
“At home or outdoors, in the gym or on the track, participants can run and upload their distances.”
The RCAF Run is a signature event of the Royal Canadian Air Force. It is being organized by a team of volunteers, mostly staff who are working to make this event a success, led by Race Director Colonel Maggie Jacula. The RCAF Run team is located across the country.
The race is open to all Canadians of all fitness levels. There are four distances: 3k, 5k, 10k, and half marathon.
“While the military are the backbone of this event, you do not need to be a member of Canada’s military to participate,” Mr. Brier said. “Family, friends, neighbours and community members are encouraged to take part. The run will take place wherever participants are. That’s the fun of a virtual run! Participants can run at home or in their community, in nature and around.”
Additional information from Mr. Brier:
The RCAF Run has been operating for more than a decade. The funds raised support important causes. In 2018, the RCAF Run raised $20,000 for Support Our Troops. The 2019 RCAF Run raised $25,000. This year’s RCAF Run funds will go to support the Royal Canadian Air Force Centennial Fund.
Registration for the RCAF Run closes on June 19.
