CFB Edmonton – The base will play host to Loops for the Troops once again this year, a fun run / walk sheduled to take place on Canadian Forces Day (June 1). The event includes a fun run / walk as well as a military mile, 10-kilometre road race and a half marathon.

Loops for the Troops was developed through a partnership between the family of Cpl Bryce Keller M.M.V, a local fallen soldier, CFB Edmonton and the Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC). The run/walk is dedicated to all Canadian Soldiers, their families, and to those Soldiers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to the country at home and abroad.

The event will take place at 8 a.m. June 1 at the Edmonton Garrison Lecture Training Facility Building 185 at CFB Edmonton.
Those interested in registering for the event can do so by visiting or by contacting the MFRC at 780-973-4011 (ext.6300). All proceeds from the event are donated to the Edmonton Garrison MFRC to support local programs and services.
