Runs

All runs begin at the Lisgar Street entrance of City Hall, 111 Lisgar.

NOTICE: Due to the Stay-at-Home order issued by Premier Ford today (and effective 12:01 am on Thursday, 14 January 2021), runs are cancelled until further notice. Until we are able to run in person, please join us for an hour-long Zoom check-in starting on Tuesday, 19 January 2021, at 6:30 pm. This will be a recurring Zoom meeting to enable members to stay connected until the Stay-at-Home order is lifted. For the Zoom link, email the club at ofr@ottawafrontrunners.org.

Regular runs are held on Tuesdays and Saturdays, as well as the Women’s* 5 km walk or run on Fridays: 4, 11, 25 September; 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 October (*this event is open to all who identify as women, female-identifying, non-binary, and Two-Spirit individuals).

Cancellation of runs are rare, only owing to holidays and hazardous weather. When runs are cancelled, we post a notice on this site and send an e-mail to members.

Besides Regular Runs, we also have Special Runs for those wishing for extra training, running on different days, or trying a new route.
