No Frills 10-Miler and 5K

Founded in 1998 by the late Peter Jones—a local running enthusiast, race organizer and run club member—the No Frills 10-Mile Road Race is a low-cost, high quality evening race held at one of Ottawa’s most distinctive pieces of land, the Central Experimental Farm.  In support of the Friends of the Farm organization, who provide lots of volunteer support, the No Frills 10-Mile Road Race provides an opportunity for runners to take on the classic 10 mile distance in an idyllic, traffic-free setting, on what is usually a beautiful summer’s evening.  New this year, the Cowpattie Relay has been replaced with a 5K individual race.
