The National Peace Officers Memorial Run takes place on Parliament Hill on the last Sunday of September.

The Run is an annual event that was started by the Peel Regional Police Service Running Team in 2005 to raise awareness of the Annual memorial service.

It consists of a 460 kilometre run from the Ontario Police Memorial at Queens Park and ends at the National Peace Officers Memorial on Parliament Hill, Ottawa. 

Proceeds from the run are used to support Police/Peace Officer Memorials across the country, as well as the surviving families of those Officers that have made the ultimate sacrifice and have passed away in the line of duty.

This year the Toronto Police Service will be represented by 64 runners who will wear armbands honouring the 41 Toronto Officers that are on our Wall of Honour, and will be running 10 kilometre legs from Toronto to Ottawa over three days.

Service Members and the public are invited to attend the opening service on Thursday September 24, 2015 at 8:00 am at the Ontario Police Memorial; Grosvenor Street and Queens Park Crescent, and to participate in the 4 kilometre team run to 51 Division.

Service Members and the public are invited to attend the closing service on Saturday September 26, 2015 at 3:00 pm at the National Peace Officers Memorial in Ottawa.
