Kids Run Ottawa
Kids Run Ottawa program is a community-based initiative that gets kids up and running and encourages active, healthy lifestyles from a young age.
Run Ottawa has designed a 14-week program for kids between the ages of 6-12 that can be easily implemented in the classroom or outside of the classroom in an organized run club.
This program culminates at the finish line of Scotiabank Ottawa Kids Marathon on Sunday, May 27, 2018.

The 14-week program officially starts on Monday, February 19, 2018!
