Scotiabank Ottawa Kids Marathon

The Scotiabank Ottawa Kids Marathon is a chance for kids aged 6-12 to take part in the excitement of the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend.

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. Schools and run clubs, please visit Kids Run Ottawa for a fun, active program designed for students 6-12 years old.  

Please note that children are expected to run on their own.
