This was the 7th year for this event. A 1/2 marathon, a 10K and a family 2k all held in Stittsville. A great event with a real community feel.
Ottawa’s Emergency Services support of this race makes it like no other in town. Uniformed Police. Paramedics and Firefighters passing out medals, the biggest flag around and the Chief’s Chilli Cook-off which the Fire Services always win.
Over the last 4 years this event has raised over $100,000 for charities involved with mental health. Bushtukah has been involved with this race for several years. The 2017 date is October 14th . You can find more information here.
