Rideau Carleton Raceway is a working establishment, they have graciously agreed to host us for our races – to make as little impact on the times that the horses are exercised I have agreed that we will move our start time, to 8am.
We will run the race until 10:15 – if you are doing 15km and are not sure you can finish in that time (2hrs 15mins) please let me know, we can move you over to the 10km race.
Apologies for these changes, we have been working very hard with the raceway to offer the best possible route to run, and includes the horse warm up area, hence the changes. It is a much better course than the one we were able to use in January. Thank you for your understanding.

Come back and see Rideau Carleton Raceway without the snow, ice and frigid temperatures! Guaranteed to be just as amazing as Race 1, but this time run under clear skies, with the sun on your back (fingers crossed!). Races of 5, 10 and 15km. (Loops of 5km course).

  • Chip timed by Quidchrono.
  • Race entry only $15.
  • Draw prizes for great merchandise after the race.
  • 10% in store discount on race weekend at MEC Ottawa with your bib (one transaction, in store, in stock items only).
  • Clif Bar refreshment station after every race.
  • Awesome MEC medal for top 3 finishers male and female.
  • Low impact –if we can compost, recycle or re-use it, we will!

Start directly underneath grandstand seating on the horse racing track before running along a (closed to traffic) tree lined lane for approx. 2km, a quick loop, then return to finish the race by completing the lap of the track – or continue on a second (or third) lap for the 10km & 15km runners!

Timing for all 2014 races in the MEC series will be instant through QuidChrono chip timing services.

MEC races still offer the exact same fantastic value for money as before!
