Support Army Run 2017! 

This year’s “Army Run” takes place on Sunday, 17 September in Ottawa and we have runners that will be happy for our presence, our cheering, and our moral support.

 

We are pleased to announce that Latvians living in and around Ottawa including Embassy staff will be joined by a team of five soldiers from Latvia.

 

Our runners have selected various distances – there is a 5km (starting at 8 a.m.), 10km (starting at 8:45 a.m.) and the 21.1km half marathon (starting at 9:30am – this is the race in which the soldiers from Latvia are taking part). The starting line for the races is at the intersection of Elgin and Laurier streets.

 

After the half marathon, around 12 noon, we will be celebrating runners and all those who have contributed to the marathon physically or “in spirit”, with refreshments and snacks at the Peace Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church (located at 83 Main Street).

 

The Latvian cheering station will be nearby where Main Street intersects with Colonel By Drive, the same place we have staked out on previous marathons.

INVITATION

 

Let’s come together on Parliament Hill to mark the annual Balts Unity Day at 9.00 o’clock on the morning of Friday, the 22nd of September.

 

We launched this tradition last year. The presence of all three Baltic States leaves a good impression of mutual support and solidarity. It will not take much time but it means a lot, and even more at a moment when Canada is exerting such strong efforts on behalf of Baltic Sea security and promotion of trade and business with Europe.

 

Starting at 8.50 a.m. , gather on the left side of the back of the green when facing the main Parliament Building. Bring small national flags to wave and readiness to sing national songs and anthems of the Baltic states joined by the voices of members of our local communities from in and around Ottawa.

 

Looking forward to see you there!

Scandinavian meets Mediterranean – you can call it Scanditerranean, if you wish. Our design philosophy is strongly based on protecting these elements, a concept very well understood in Canada, being in same latitude as Estonia.”
