Kids Run Ottawa School Program

“A little progress each day adds up to big results!” Anonymous. 

Run Ottawa has developed a 10-week program for kids between the ages of 6-12 that can be easily implemented in school, before or after school or in a community run club. Coaches can be school staff, parents, peer leaders or community members. All resources, coaching tips, incentive tokens, finisher certificates are provided by Run Ottawa.

The 10-week program officially starts on Monday, March 9, 2020, and culminates at the finish line of Scotiabank Ottawa Kids Marathon which is held on a new day and time this year: Saturday, May 23, 2020 at 2:00 pm! Parents, coaches and supporters, will be able to watch their kids start AND finish the race for the first time in 10 years. It’s an exciting change to what is the most electrifying event of the weekend!
