Free Saturday 5K Series
On the first Saturday morning of every month (with the exception of November), Run Ottawa holds a free 5K event at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum. This is a great way to test your fitness over the summer and fall at a family friendly event.
Come run at your pace of choice on this scenic route that is held on the roads and pathways within the Central Experimental Farm.
These events are self timed, aided by a digital clock at the finish line. Water will be available on-site.
We would like to acknowledge and thank the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum for their support of our Saturday Farm Runs. To learn more about the Museum and all their great programs, including their upcoming Baconpalooza, please visit their website. You can also follow them on Twitter @agmuseum
Reminder: These events are free for everyone!
