Registration for Tamarack Ottawa Virtual Race Weekend 2021 and Scotiabank Virtual Ottawa Marathon is now open!

Your 2021 journey starts here.

Run Ottawa is excited to announce the opening of the 2021 virtual editions of Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend and Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon! Along with all your favourite distances, this year’s offerings include the Ottawa 50K, an Ottawa 2K family pack for 4, and a special TEAM edition of the Bytown Challenge in support of The Ottawa Hospital.

Plus, the Scotiabank Charity Challenge is back for 2021 and, as always, 100% of funds raised go directly to the charities! In 2020, participants raised over $400K for their favourite local organizations—an amazing feat considering the challenges faced over the past year! The program charities are incredibly grateful for your support and ask that you please consider fundraising or donating once again in 2021. Every dollar counts.

Included in your registration:

  • A stunning 2021 medal 
  • A free training plan with Runcoach
  • A personalised race bib
  • 15% discount on exclusive Run Ottawa training gear
  • Your personal cheering squad with Motigo App
  • A results platform that includes separate running and walking categories, a photo gallery and digital medal
  • Multiple chances to win special prizes from Run Ottawa’s partners

Run Ottawa is offering a Green Bib option at registration for those wishing to reduce their environmental footprint. In lieu of a medal or any mailed amenities, you can choose to divert part of your registration fee to a charity within the Scotiabank Charity Challenge.
