Ottawa Half Marathon

Register

Every year, the Ottawa Half Marathon is the weekend’s biggest field and fastest sell-out.

The course is fast and relatively flat, making it great for personal bests and runners trying the distance for the first time. It’s also beautiful, taking runners past historic landmarks, through vibrant neighbourhoods and back and forth across the Ottawa River and through the province of Quebec.

Best of all, the half marathon boasts an unbeatable atmosphere of enthusiastic spectators and volunteers.
