Join us for the May 2024 Ottawa Race Weekend

Fun, fitness and fundraising!

Run or walk and fundraise with us to support people struggling with problematic substance use, addiction and related mental health challenges.

Race options include:
2K // 5K // 10K // 21.1K // 42.2K
3 challenges // kids’ marathon (1.2K)
  • If you choose the in-person option, you’ll race with other participants in Ottawa’s downtown on May 25th or 26th. (If the registration block you would like to race in is sold out, connect with us. We’ll work with Ottawa Race Weekend to register you.)
  • If you choose the virtual option, you can complete your race on your own terms – any day and at any location during the month of May.

Interested in participating, but can’t afford the entry fee? Good news, Rideauwood has a fund in place to  cover the cost for you to participate! Connect with us for this opportunity.
