This page will allow you to register for all six MEC Ottawa 2017 running races with a base price of only $12.00 per race!

Our 2017 season will open on Saturday February 11th with a chilly classic, an old school 5K/10K - we even time it with popsicle sticks!

Next up, tune up your speed for spring racing with a flat, fast dash along the river parkway from the Canada Aviation and Space Museum on April 16th.

Take it up a notch on Father’s Day (June 18th), while most of the Ottawa running community goes dormant join us for a hot, dusty race out on some beautiful country roads west of Ottawa, a perfect way to celebrate Dad’s Day!

For the next two races, hit the trails, first for a mountain style race on July 9th, similar to the fell running of our British race director’s homeland – this is the race that features that fearsome Heggtveit Hill! Then push your boundaries on August 6th with a long distance trail race in Gatineau Park – race your first 50K!

Lastly – the Gatineau Park Marathon, Half and 5K close out the season on October 29th – challenge yourself with the hilliest, most beautiful race around – or…race the flat(ish) 5K for a blistering close to your 2017 races!

Races one to five are timed by Sportstats. All road running races are measured and certified by Athletics Canada for accurate distance (eligible for a personal record!). All races are sanctioned by their provincial athletics body.
