Ottawa Race Weekend is here
On Saturday the 2K race begins at 3:00 pm followed by the 5 and 10 K races
Sunday morning the Ottawa Marathon begins at 7:00 am followed by the Kids Marathon and the Half Marathon
Race organizers say the men’s race promises to be exciting, with seven men boasting personal bests faster than the current course record of 2:06:54.
Ethiopian women have dominated the Ottawa Marathon with the past nine winners hailing from the East African nation.
There will be some loud noise as a Canadian Forces CT-155 Hawk jet does a fly-past before the start of the 10K race on Saturday.
It will happen at 6:25 p.m. over Colonel By Drive, then on to City Hall and Parliament Hill before flying back to the Ottawa International Airport.
