Richmond Road Races

Run fast or freeze!

This much anticipated event is back for 2023! Start the new year off on the right foot and join your running community for a 5 or 10k!

If you have run this event, you’ll know why it’s an annual favourite, with cool medals, a friendly, warm atmosphere and a post-race social, featuring awards, draw prizes and a lunch with all the fixins—including a beer from Kichesippi or non-alcoholic beer from Athletic Brewing Co.! It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up with old running friends, and make some new ones.

In an effort to offer participants the opportunity to reduce their environmental footprint and support their community, Run Ottawa has initiated a Green Bib option at registration. The Green Bib does not include a race t-shirt (unless purchased) or medal, and a donation will be made to L’Arche Ottawa.
