The Ottawa Kids Marathon is a chance for kids ages 5-12 to take part in the excitement of the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend—and stay active through the spring months!

Young marathoners check off kilometres daily or weekly by running or walking in the weeks leading up to the race. On May 28, 2022 they’ll run or walk their final 1.2 kilometres on the real Tartan Ottawa International Marathon race course adding up to a grand total of 42.2 kilometres: A MARATHON! 

Every child will receive an Ottawa Kids Marathon medal to make this an experience your child will remember!

PLEASE NOTE: Children are expected to run alone. There are no adults allowed on the Ottawa Kids Marathon course.

PARENTS: Register your children here and download the Ottawa Kids Marathon Tracker Sheet or use the Google Sheet tracker for marking down your child’s kilometres.

TEACHERS: Please fill out the online form to receive information about the Kids Run Ottawa School Program.
