2019 Canada Army Run 5K finish
You are receiving this message because your finish time was impacted by the unfortunate congestion at the 5K finish. It is our goal every year to have participants finish the race on their terms, which unfortunately did not occur in some cases. There are a number of factors that led to this issue, including on-site construction, corral size and aspects of the post-race product slowing down crowd flow. All of these issues are being addressed to prevent this issue from recurring in the future.
You will find on your www.Sportstats.ca official time that an adjustment has been made to your overall finish time. We were able to do this because we had timing systems throughout the course, including the following locations:
- Wellington and Kent, before the first turnaround
- 1 km before the finish
- An announcer’s mat within the last 100m
We understand that paces may have slowed down or sped up in that time, however we want to reflect the best available data. We have made this adjustment to your finish time, no further adjustments to 5K times will be made.
We would like to offer you $10 off registration for next year. Please use the code "20195K" when registering, and this code does not expire.
A much better time and the $10 off is a very nice gesture. It seems as if they did realize that the finish was a great way to end the run.
