Run Ottawa Race Weekend
The Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend is the biggest multi-distance race event in Canada. As one of two IAAF Gold Label marathon events in Canada, the race attracts Canada’s largest marathon field as well as a world-class contingent of elite athletes every year.
Featuring the beautiful scenery of Canada’s capital, the top-notch organization of an IAAF event, the atmosphere of hundreds of thousands of spectators, and a fast course perfect both for personal bests and first-timers, this is a world-class marathon that must be experienced. The Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon is also one of Canada’s largest Boston Qualifiers.
The Ottawa Race Weekend also features two challenges for runners to push their limites. The Lumberjack Challenge puts runners into four of the races during the weekend: the Ottawa 2K, the Ottawa 5K, the Ottawa 10K and the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon. The Voyageur Challenge puts runners into three events during the weekend: the Ottawa 5K, the Ottawa 10K and the Scotiabank Ottawa Half-Marathon.
