Event Date: May 23, 2020 - May 24, 2020
The 2020 Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend has been cancelled, but a virtual event will run in its place so that participants can run or walk on their own while also practicing physical distancing.
This virtual race will be an opportunity for runners and walkers to earn their 2020 medals and t-shirts by running or walking on their own, while respecting and promoting all public health physical distancing guidelines. Run Ottawa will partner with Sportstats to create a shareable virtual finish line as well as a comprehensive set of results.
Participants who were using this year’s event to fundraise are encouraged to continue to raise funds and promote their favourite causes through the new virtual race and by using the hashtag #ScotiaCharityChallenge, from now until August 31, 2020.
In 1975, 146 runners lined up at Carleton University to take part in the first ever Ottawa Marathon. 42 years later the race has grown into Canada’s largest multi-day running event, but the spirit has remained the same: to build a community that is dedicated and passionate about the sport of running, and to promote a healthy and active lifestyle.
