Accommodations and Travel


Ottawa is very fortunate in that most of the hotels are walking distance to and from the start and finish lines. The Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend uses HTG Sports Services to provide hotel bookings for all of our visitors. Click here for a list of hotels.

HTG has negotiated special rates with the following hotels. 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
