Scotiabank Ottawa Kids Marathon for CHEO

The Scotiabank Ottawa Kids Marathon for CHEO is a chance for kids to take part in the excitement of the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend—and help other kids by supporting the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario or CHEO.

This special marathon starts weeks before race day, as our young marathoners add kilometres by taking part in regular physical activities, such as running, soccer, basketball, and hockey. For every half hour of activity, one kilometre is crossed off. After accumulating 41 kilometres, the kids complete their race by running the last 1.2 km on the real marathon course. It is a triumphant finish.

For more information, download the Scotiabank Ottawa Kids Marathon Information Package, which includes a Tracker Sheet for marking down kilometres.
