Free Saturday 5K Series

Free Saturday 5K Series

On the first Saturday morning of almost every month (dates below), Run Ottawa holds a free 5K event at Ottawa’s Central Experimental Farm. This is a great way to test your fitness over the summer and fall at a family friendly event.

Come run at your pace of choice on this scenic route that is held on the roads and pathways within the Central Experimental Farm.

These events are self timed, aided by a digital clock at the finish line. Each runner is to record their finish time on the registration sheet, which are compiled afterwards and results are posted at by the following Monday.

Water and Gatorade will be available on-site.

Reminder: These events are free for everyone!

For more information contact Joe Du Vall via email, or call 613-234-2221.
