Scotiabank Canada Day Road Races
The Scotiabank Canada Day Road Races presented by Bushtukah were founded in 1987 to give runners the opportunity to kick off their holiday celebrations with a festive, well-organized race through the streets of Old Kanata. Today it is one of the region’s premiere running events with over 1500 runners participating every Canada Day.
With fun, friendly, competitive 5K and 10K events, a 1.5K Fun Run for kids between 5 and 11, and a 100 Metre Tot Trot for children 4 and under, the Scotiabank Canada Day Road Races is the perfect way for runners of every age and level of experience to start their holiday on the right foot.
Note: Parents who feel it is necessary to run with their child may do so but the 1.5K event is designed for children 5-13 year of age. You will not receive a race bib or finish time and online registration will be restricted to the aforementioned age range.
Support the Queensway-Carleton Hospital Foundation (QCHF) and enter the ‘Team Challenge.’ This is not a relay, just a great chance to gather up friends, families or coworkers and raise funds for the QCHF.
You can enter as many people as you wish for your team, which is created via the online race registration page. There are 3 team categories: Men, Women and Combined Men/Women. The top 4 finishers for each team determines your score and the top teams in that category will be awarded a prize. The $50 fee per runner includes the team name on the back of your race t’shirt and a team picture for all team members.
More details are outlined below and our online race registration page, including how to raise funds for the QCHF.
