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.
T-shirts will be available for runners in the 5K and 10K races. You must register before October 25th in order to be guaranteed a shirt.
