Beaver Chase Series

Run Ottawa’s ‘Beaver Chase Trail Series’ returns in 2019 and will mark the 26th consecutive season these informal events will be held during the spring and summer months.

The series is intended to provide the running community organized, fun opportunities to move off the pavement and onto a trail.
