The Great Big Cookie Run presented by Bushtukah

Unfortunately, this event is cancelled for 2020. We will not be holding a virtual option for this race.

Everyone loves to run for the Cookies! For 18 years we’ve been proud to bring you Ottawa’s Great Big Cookie Run with our good friends from Bushtukah in support of the local Girl Guides.

We’re focusing our efforts this year on a 5K and 1K Kids Run in an all new location at Lansdowne Park! That means everyone gets to the cookies at the finish line sooner! It’s the last major run before the big snow flies and a great way for runners of all ages and levels to wrap-up the year!

Great shirts and medals make the day even better…..we’ll see you there!

You can keep up to date with news on this run and other Run Ottawa events by following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Run Ottawa also features a series of free and affordable Kids Runs throughout the year. Please visit Kids Run Ottawa to learn more about our program designed for young runners 6-12 years.
