Beau’s Workplace Run-Off

The Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, Beau’s All Natural and the Scotiabank Charity Challenge are inviting you to take part in a little healthy competition – and to make a difference to your workplace and your community in the process. It’s called the Beau’s Workplace Run-Off. We’re celebrating Canada 150 with a goal of raising $150,000 for local charities. Let’s do it!

What’s Involved?

All you need to do is get a few co-workers together who like to run and then start fundraising as a team while training for the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. Invite your work friends, your department, or your whole company. By entering a team in the challenge, you’ll be going up against other workplaces for great prizes – and bragging rights – all while raising money for a worthy local charity.

STEP 1: Start building your team

This can be as simple as getting two or three co-workers together. Once you’ve formed your team, invite others to join. Come up with a fun name to get the ball rolling!

STEP 2: Choose your charity

Check out the list of charities participating in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge and decide what charity will inspire your team to go the distance. Don’t see your charity on the list? Find out how to become a participating charity. 

STEP 3: Sign up for your race

Each team member needs to register individually for one of the events at the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. You and your team can run the same race together or mix it up and participate in different distances depending on personal goals.

STEP 4: Register your team

When you and your team members are signed up, send a list with your team name, the charity you are running for, and the names of all the members to [email protected]. You can add more names to your team as you go.

STEP 5: Train and fundraise!

Get training and fundraising! Follow your team’s fundraising progress on the Scotiabank Charity Challenge website. Organize a weekly training run at work. It’ll keep the motivation going.

STEP 6: Run!

Gather your team and head on down to the starting line on May 27/28, 2017. Run knowing you’ve made a difference in creating a healthier workplace while supporting your community.
