Visit the Bib Market to see what's available
It's perfectly understandable if you missed out registering for one of the main events at the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. Those bibs went faster than a box of Suzy Q donuts after a long run.
Which is why we are very excited to announce the official launch of the Bib Market. We wanted to make it easier for already registered runners to sell their bibs, and runners looking for bibs to find them. Enter the Bib Market.
So if you're looking for an entry, click here to see what's available. If the event you want is listed, it means a runner has offered their entry for sale. Click on the button and register as usual (a $20 fee will be added at check out). No entry? Check back again, bibs are always coming up.
Can no longer run in May? Don't let that bib go to waste! Offer your bib for sale on the Bib Market. It's as easy as clicking a button (okay, two buttons). The best part is payment goes right back on your credit card when someone buys your bib. Visit the Bib Market for more info.
Our Run Ottawa blog has been featuring the training exploits of some regular runners training for the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon and telling it in their own words. However, one difference from you and I is that our blogging team has Canadian Marathon Champion, Rob Watson, on their speed dial (or speed email).
Indeed, Rob has been kind enough to offer training tips and words of encouragement as he himself trains to defend his Canadian Championship against the likes of Olympian Eric Gillis at the marathon event in May.
We'll be featuring an update from Rob in the next few days but in the meantime, you can visit the blog to find out how Domenic got a nasty surprise cooling down on a run in Florida, how Sinead rocked some 8-milers on a cruise ship, and how Jason continued to brave the Spring that never was, frozen water bottles and all.
