The Cookie Run – Presented by Bushtukah

PLEASE NOTE: All three events for the 2017 Cookie Run are now sold out. Big thanks to everyone who registered. See you on the 4th!  

In 2000, Run Ottawa organized the first Cookie Run to help local Girl Guide and Pathfinder groups raise money to attend their national jamboree in Calgary. The event was a great success and now every year the run is a major fundraiser for Girl Guides’ travel initiatives. Staged the first Saturday of November, the Cookie Run is Run Ottawa’s last major event before the winter and is a great way for every level of runner to wrap up their running season.

All distance will be marked and there will be 2 water stations situated at the 2K and 4K marks. This means that 5K runners will get water twice during their race and 10K participants 4 times. There will be marshals to guide runners to the turnaround spot for both events.

The 1.5K will also run out an out and back route along the parkway.
