Beyond the thrill of competition and all of the benefits of fitness, one of the wonderful things about running is how it brings people together as a community. Every year during the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend we see Ottawa and Gatineau come together to run together, cheer together, volunteer together and fundraise together. It’s a special thing to be a part of.

But it doesn’t stop with race weekend. Each of the other events that Run Ottawa puts on throughout the year is another opportunity for community building. No matter how small the event, there are always opportunities to volunteer. And we are always open to hearing fundraising proposals from charities in the community.
