Ready, Set, Race!

There’s no denying that the Rideau Canal is the prefect route for a spring run.

Runners have already dusted off their shoes and have taken to the pathway to prepare for the upcoming races across Ottawa.

This season, Sporting Life will be hosting their first 10k event in Ottawa on Mother’s Day. The race route will run along the scenic route of the Rideau Canal with the post run party hosted at Lansdowne Park on Sunday, May 10. The run is perfect for families looking to support their community in a fun and active setting and it’s also a great opportunity for women to get out and celebrate Mom.

“We are so excited to work with Sporting Life on their first 10k event in Ottawa,” says Connie Lebrun, Corporate Development Officer, CHEO Foundation. “With net proceeds going to the children’s hospital, this event will generate essential funds to further our support of local children and families in need.”

“When you weigh the price to run and what you get with the offering participants are virtually running for free,” says John Roe, Director of Marketing Sporting Life. “Plus you add in that when you raise over $100 you get your registration fee back…it’s a win-win for both the participant and the charity. What makes the Sporting Life 10k different than all others is that all the net proceeds go to the charity.”

There is still time to register. See you there!
