Accreditation

All media wishing to access the Media Center, Finish Line or other restricted areas during the Ottawa Race Weekend must receive media credentials. To do this, please fill out the accreditation form.

Media outlets planning to send a large crew are asked to provide a designated newsroom contact person for inquiries, a full list (as accurate as possible) of those covering the event onsite, and the total number of passes required for camerapersons, photographers and reporters.

Please note, Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend will not reimburse travel or provide accommodations for any media covering the 2014 Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend.
