MEC Ottawa race 1 – the cold one!

Join MEC Ottawa for the first race in our 2014 7 race series! It’s going to be EPIC!! Come out and test your mettle against the elements!

On Sunday January 26th 2014 join us at Rideau Carleton Raceway for a celebration of running. Runners will participate on a 5km course for races of 5 and 10km.

Start directly underneath grandstand seating on the horse racing track before running along a (closed to traffic) tree lined lane for approx. 2km, before (and this is where it gets exciting and unique) entering woodland to run on a specially groomed, smooth, track. Finish the race by completing the lap of the track – or continue on a second lap for the 10km runners!

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

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

Bring your friends or family who can watch you race from the warmth inside (or race too!).
