Welcome to the new Run Ottawa website!

There’s only one Run Ottawa. Now there’s only one website.

Here at Run Ottawa, we are very excited to announce the launch of our brand new website. The new site (found at runottawa.com) brings together all of our races, events and activities in one place and gives us a larger platform for engaging with the local running community all year long.

So what are the major changes and where can I find everything?

The old runottawa.com focused solely on delivering information about the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend and the events that make up that weekend, like the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon and HTG Sports Ottawa 5K.

The new site includes all of that race weekend information, as well as information about the other annual running events that Run Ottawa puts on throughout the year (this information used be found at www.runottawaclub.com) You can find all of these events by looking under the Races & Events menu or visiting the Event Calendar.

Because there is so much involved in putting on the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, those weekend events also include a special menu that includes all of the information runners and spectators need to know, from Race Kit Pick-Up to Road Closures.

The new site has more information about Run Ottawa

Did you know that Run Ottawa is a non-profit membership based organization? And that there is an active club that you can join for a small annual fee? You can find all of that information under About Run Ottawa. If you’re a member, you’ll soon be able to log in to the Member Area to get Member News and more.

The new site has a blog! And lots of Ottawa running news.

Like most runners, we love to talk about running and the What’s New area of the new website will help us keep the conversation. Check back frequently to find out what new training or nutrition article has been posted on the Blog, or just sign up for our newsletter. Every month we’ll send a short update on the latest and greatest from the website.

Contact us and stay in touch!

Most of all, our new website is a way for you to keep in touch with Run Ottawa and support you and the larger running community in pursuing our common passion—running! You can contact us through Facebook, Twitter, by email, or even phone or snail mail. We always want to hear from you and will make every effort to respond.
