Accommodations and Travel

Please note: the information below refers to the 2018 Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. Check back soon for updates regarding 2019.


With the start and finish lines for Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend located right downtown, we are fortunate that many of Ottawa’s hotels are within walking distance. To make it easier for runners to get to and from our course, we’ve worked with HTG Sports Services to negotiate special rates for Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend participants. Finding a good deal and booking a hotel is easy, take a look at our list participating hotels and choose the one that fits your price range.

Please note: 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.

Ottawa Marriott

The official accommodation partner of the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend since 1997, the Ottawa Marriott provides accommodation for our elite athletes who come to Ottawa from around the world. Located in the heart of the city, steps away from the Ottawa River, the Ottawa Marriott is the perfect place for out-of-town runners to relax, get ready and meet other like-minded athletes during Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. Visit their website to book your stay in Ottawa.


Host a runner during race weekend

Do you live in the National Capital Region? Would you like to host a runner during the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend – and make money and support a charity at the same time?

Because of the popularity of the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, runners travelling to the city from out-of-town often find it difficult to track down a hotel room.

To help make sure that our runners have a great place to stay, we partnered with StayBillety, a new peer-to-peer accommodation service with a focus on providing accommodations for sporting events.

If you have a spare room or suite, list it on StayBillety. When you host runners with StayBillety, you:

  • Keep 97% of the revenue
  • Help support Run Ottawa’s chosen charity
  • Give travelling runners a great place to stay
