The 5/15 Farm Run


The annual “Running with the cows” event is BACK! The 5/15 Farm Run will return Wednesday, July 12, 2023, in support of The Cheo Foundation. It’s traditionally a beautiful evening for a run on the farm!

In an effort to offer participants the opportunity to reduce their environmental footprint and support their community, Run Ottawa has a Green Bib option at registration. The Green Bib does not include a medal, instead, $10 of your registration fees go to The Cheo Foundation..

All participants can also make a donation to The Cheo Foundation at the end of the registration process. Thank you for your support!

WHY 5/15?

5/15 is significant in that at 5:15pm the cow whisperers will be running the cows to the field at that time.


All participants in the 5K and 15K receive a medal, timing bib, and post-race snacks & beverages. All participants in the Kids 1K Run will receive timing and a cotton race shirt! The option to purchase a commemorative ASICS race shirt is available!

See you at the farm!
