Join Run Ottawa

Run Ottawa is a membership-based, non-profit running organization that is dedicated to promoting running as both a great recreational activity and a competitive sport for men, women and youth in Canada’s National Capital Region.

Membership is a very affordable $35/year and comes with many benefits (see below). Of course, one of the biggest benefits is becoming part of a group that is not only dedicated to running but that also has input into how our events are run every year. You can participate as much as you like, but the option is always there to get involved.

It’s easy to sign up. Register online and become part of Run Ottawa today!
