Richmond Road Races

Run Ottawa invites you to kick off your 2015 race season at the 33rd annual Richmond Road Races, presented by our friends at Bushtukah.

If you have ever run this event, you’ll know why it’s an annual favourite, with a friendly, warm atmosphere (to go along with the chilly temperatures) and a post-race lunch that is the perfect opportunity to catch up with old running friends, and make some new ones.

Note: All runners receive a long sleeved technical race shirt.
