Run for the Animals

The Escape Manor Run for the Animals is one of the largest fundraising events of the year for the Ottawa Humane Society,  a non-profit, community-based organization and a registered charity that provides a safe haven for sick, injured and homeless animals in Ottawa.

Whether you have 2 legs or 4, this event has something for everyone. There are races 5K, 10K, a 3K run with a canine companion and a Kids Fun Run 1K. There’s also the 1K & 3K Science Diet® Wiggle Waggle Walkathon, where you can bring an animal companion along with you.

Finally, there’s a lot more great stuff to check out at Queen Juliana Park, including a Family Fun Zone, a Pet Pavilion, Food Trucks and finally a K9 Fun Zone.
