Event Detailed Description

Scotiabank Ottawa Half Marathon Charity Registration

You see it – up ahead – the finish line.  Your feet pound the pavement; your heart is pounding even harder as you go by the hundreds of spectators cheering you on.  The announcers call out your name. You smile, raise your hands in the air, and a photographer captures your moment of victory!  You are so incredibly proud of your accomplishment. Not just because you finished, but because you did it for someone you love and to support The Ottawa Hospital.

Feel the power of making a difference! Register today for Run for a Reason in support of The Ottawa Hospital during Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. Put your best foot forward,
