Infolettre de la Fin de semaine des courses Tamarack d'Ottawa
Current Issue: October 2013

Fall is here and we’re pumped! Time to bring on cooler running temperatures and great fall races like the Jim Howe Memorial (find out more in this month’s Le Mot de Joe). Fall also means that registration for the 2014 Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend is now open. And with this year being the 40th anniversary of the Ottawa Marathon, it’s going to be a big one. Check out Race News for a preview of our 40th marathon shirt, and get the inside scoop in our interview with Race Director, John Halvorsen.

This month’s newsletter covers September and October. Look out in the first week of November for our next issue, which will feature the return of the popular Motivation column.
