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 Ottawa Salus.

We provide a first step in the recovery process — a stable home environment — including a transitional rehabilitation program, shared homes and independent living. We also provide mental health programs and services that are customized to meet each of our clients’ unique needs on their journey to well-being and independence.

Please note: Athletes competing with Wheelchair – With these races taking place on partially closed roads there are sections that pass multiple vehicle entry points, posing great risk to those competing in racing wheelchairs. It may be suitable for recreational athletes. Please contact Danielle Avery directly for further consultation.
