Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend Newsletter
Current Issue: April 2014

There are less than four weeks to go until the biggest running weekend in Canada and the biggest marathon in the country. Which means a ton of information, anticipation, and, yes, sweat, is going around Ottawa these days. It's darn exciting.

Below, you'll find out when the last moment is to snap up a race bib, be treated to an interview with Geoffrey Mutai, get recovery tips from a therapist/ultramarathoner, and get the scoop on some cool promotions.

If you are also receiving our Race Director emails, we apologize for any overlap with this month's newsletter. It's hard to keep all the excitement in one place.
