First year doing this race. The starting line is about 1km from the high school they have you park at, and not visible. No signs mark the way, so it's a lot of guess work. They also advertised 3 different start times for the 10k, so I was late to start even when I made it just in time. I would highly recommend better signage. I saw runners heading back to their cars bc they were too late and couldn't find the starting line.
That said, it's a great value race for your money. Fun finisher medal, really nice quality (and not unisex!) running tshirt, and a lovely course that was well marked. I would do it again, but I'm glad I know where I am going next time!
Family friendly event with proceeds supporting the Girl Guides of Canada. Located in Ottawa at a local high school and offered a flat course that loops out and back. 5K and 10K options available. Finishers medal and top finisher prizes including age categories. Friendly volunteers, easy registration and race kit pick up. Nice cotton tee. Only downside was they did not order any Large ladies shirts and we had to take a men's cut or a smaller size ladies. A bit disappointing. Cookies available to purchase on site, music and water stations along the course. Fruit, bagels and water at finish line. Indoor facilities at the school and a short walk to race start/finish line. Free parking. Easy access from Hwy #417. Sells out quickly.
