Finishing off this series on the Army Run event today, I have these shots. This is the Leopard, a heavily armoured main battle tank used by several NATO countries. Last year I was inside one of these- it was cramped!
Nearby was this, the LAV 6.0. This Light Armoured Vehicle is the Army's primary infantry vehicle, used in various ways, such as a transport, command post, or for electronic warfare. I also got on top of it.
This is a view from the top of the LAV, taking in Cartier Square Drill Hall, which dates back to 1879.
On Sunday I came back, to find many of the participants in the major run of the event, a half marathon, having had finished the race, gathered around City Hall, Cartier Square, and in Confederation Park. All told, over twenty thousand runners took part.
This view south from the Laurier Avenue Bridge has runners coming through the finish line.
Many of the runners went beneath the bridge and into Confederation Park, where things had been set up for post-race unwinding and relaxation. This view north takes in some of them, with views of the NAC and the Peace Tower for good measure.
