Loops for the Troops 2020 - Edmonton

Notice: Race Postponed

Loops for the Troops is an annual fun run and walk event that takes place on the first Sunday in June on Canadian Armed Forces Day, and is dedicated to our Canadian Armed Forces, Veterans, First Responders, their families, and in memorial for those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country, both at home and abroad. This event is highly anticipated, well attended and is consistently one the MFRC’S largest fundraiser and community engagement events.

In light of the continued mass gathering restrictions due to Covid-19, the MFRC will be postponing the Loops for the Troops event on June 7, 2020. The MFRC will continue to monitor and assess the situation to determine if a suitable fall date will be scheduled.

If you have already registered for June 7, 2020 and would like a refund, please contact Amanda Dubé, Fund Development and Events Team Lead at 780-973-4011 ext 6328.

The MFRC would like to thank our volunteers, participants, sponsors and donors who make this run such a success each year.

Amanda Dubé, Race Director
