Race Kit Pick-Up

The following information is from the 2014 Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. It is provided here for reference and may change in 2015. Please check back closer to the event date for updated information. 

All participants must pick up their race kits prior to their event. You will only be able to pick up your kits at the Health and Fitness Expo during the posted expo hours. Runners unable to pick up their race kits prior to their event may have a friend or family member pick it up for them. Photo ID is not required. Click here for directions.

  • Friday May 23th 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
  • Saturday May 24th 9:00 am to 4:00 pm


The Health and Fitness Expo is free and open to public. The expo focuses on the health, fitness and wellness of runners. Exhibitors include retailers, personal trainers, nutritionists, physiotherapists, souvenir clothing, destination marathons, sampling booths and health professionals.

New this year, there will be supervised bike parking at the Expo on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Leave your bike in a fenced supervised area rather than trying to find a free spot on the Expo stairs. Look for the pop-up tent across from the Expo (between Colonel By and the canal). This is a free service provided by the Nakkertok Racing Committee with a suggested $2 donation to help support the Nakkertok youth racing program.

Hours of operation:

  • Thursday, May 22 (15:00 – 20:00)
  • Friday, May 23 (9:00 – 20:00)
  • Saturday, May 24 (8:00 – 20:30)

*Note that there is no parking along Colonel By Drive at any time. Cars parked on Colonel By will be ticketed and towed.
