About Overview

The Run Ottawa Club was created in 2009, when the Ottawa Race Weekend organization and the National Capital Runners Association decided to join together, pool resources and promote the sport of running in the Ottawa area.

The Run Ottawa Club is committed to the sport of running, equally so to having fun together, building strong friendships, and sharing our knowledge and love of the sport with others. We believe the work (and play) of the Run Ottawa Club can benefit the wider community as well – by encouraging health and fitness and raising funds for local organizations and charities.

Media Announcements

In our Media area, we round up the latest, greatest stories, announcements and news items related to the sport of distance running. Check out inspiring tales of the strange and wonderful people who practice our sport, or take in some online coaching for info on the latest running tips and techniques. It’s a great way to get psyched for your next training session!
