About the Legion and the Race

Regina is home to the first Legion established in Canada. When the Royal Canadian Legion was formed in 1926 it was the first branch to receive its charter - Branch 001. The Legion is committed to making a difference in the lives of Veterans and their families, providing essential services in our communities, and remembering the men and women who sacrificed for our country.
