Recovery Area

Come out and help us host 50,000 athletes with a buffet of snacks and treats in Confederation Park across the street from Ottawa City Hall.

We also celebrate with the athletes who have completed their race and help them replenish their energy. If you would like volunteer, we’d ask that you please try and join us for 3 hours or more.

This is a great opportunity for families, groups or teams to participate in the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend.
