A total of 10 Ottawa Police officers will be joining about 300 officers from across the country in the 3 day National Peace Officers’ Memorial ‘Run to Remember’ from September 24-26, 2015.

The ‘Run to Remember’ is a 460 km relay that makes its way through many communities between the start at the Ontario Police Memorial site in Toronto to the end at the National Memorial on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

Not only does the run raise awareness about the Memorial Service it also gives peace officers and citizens along the route the opportunity to participate in some small way if they are unable to attend the actual Memorial Service on Sunday, September 27 at 11:00am on Parliament Hill.

Members of the media and public can join the runners and Ottawa Police event coordinator Acting Staff Sergeant Alison Cookson on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at the Elgin Street Police Station for the last 3km to Parliament Hill. Runners will depart Elgin Station at approx. 2:15 pm to be part of the run’s closing ceremonies on Saturday on the Hill at 3:00pm.
