The tradition continues! Please join us on July 1st for the 34th edition of the Canada Day Road Races—now with Otto’s Ottawa as its title sponsor, and in support of the Perley Health Foundation. There is a run for everyone: 10K, 5K, 1k kids run and 100m tot trot!

We are pleased to announce that we are returning to our location at Earl of March High School, situated in the Beaverbrook community of Kanata North.

In an effort to offer participants the opportunity to support their community and reduce their environmental footprint, Run Ottawa has initiated a Green Bib option at registration. The Green Bib does not include a medal—instead, $10 of your registration fees will go to Perley Health Foundation. Please consider topping up your donation at the end of the registration process as an additional option to contribute. Thank you!


All participants in the 5K and 10K receive a medal, timing bib, and post-race snacks & beverages. All participants in the Kids 1K Run will receive timing and a cotton race shirt! The option to purchase a commemorative ASICS race shirt is available!

Post-race recovery nutrition will be provided by the Kanata Food Cupboard and they will be accepting non-perishable food donations on-site.

We’ll see you there!
