RCAF Run



The 1 April 2024 marks 100 years of service for the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) as a distinct military element. The Centennial milestone places the RCAF in a unique position to honour its distinct heritage; recognize its tremendous people today; and generate excitement for its bright future. The RCAF Run is a Centennial activity that will connect current and former military and their families with Canadians, at home or abroad, through sport and fitness. We welcome participants of ALL abilities and fitness levels to achieve your fitness goals at your own pace! We invite you to “Earn Your Wings” with us!

Proceeds from the RCAF Run support the RCAF Centennial Fund. Learn more about The Centennial Fund here.

2023 RCAF Run in Review

People are the heart of the Royal Canadian Air Force and our 2023 RCAF Run participants showed up with an abundance of it this year in support of The Centennial Fund. The 2023 event was our largest and most successful event to date with the assistance of RCAF Run sponsors BMO, The Personal, The Legion and Canadian Tire.

Whether virtual or in-person, some amazing memories and moments were captured of our supporters both here in Canada and abroad. Check out our 2023 RCAF Run photo gallery below.
