I loved running the Ottawa Marathon in 2014. A very organized woman in my running group (definitely not me) arranged for 22 of us to bus down together to experience all that Ottawa Race Weekend has to offer. We nicknamed ourselves “22 from Waterloo” and even designed a logo for team shirts.
Ottawa sure knows how to put on a race!
Volunteers, spectators, fellow runners, hospitality industry employees – literally everyone I met that weekend seemed to go out of their way to make us feel welcome. That’s probably why I’m so thrilled to have been chosen as an ambassador for the 2017 Ottawa Race Weekend. As a member of Team Awesome, I want to help ensure that others enjoy the experience as much as I do.

Here’s one of my favourite post-race pictures of some “22 from Waterloo” group members proudly displaying our medals back in 2014:
