Accommodations and Travel


Ottawa is very fortunate in that most of the hotels are walking distance to and from the start and finish lines. The Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend uses HTG Sports Services to provide hotel bookings for all of our visitors. Click here for a list of hotels.

HTG has negotiated special rates with the following hotels. If a hotel is indicating that it is sold out of the dates requested, we recommend contacting the hotel directly. There may still be rooms available that have not been included in our special rate block.


Run Ottawa is also excited to be partnering with StayBillety, a brand new peer-to-peer accommodation service with a focus on providing accommodations for sporting events. With StayBillety, runners travelling to Ottawa will be able to find affordable lodging with those in the community – what better way to have a true Ottawa experience?!
