2021 Virtual Ottawa Race Weekend
May 1st - May 31st, 2021
It's time to lace up your runners and start training! Join Team Perley Rideau for the 2021 Virtual Ottawa Race Weekend and raise money to support the seniors and Veterans who call the Perley Rideau home!
You can run – or walk! – the race of your choice: 2k, 5k, 10k, ½ marathon, or full marathon.
This year, because the Ottawa Race Weekend is a virtual event, participants can choose any date and location during the month of May to complete your official race. Open to all ages and abilities, you are encouraged to choose somewhere in your neighbourhood, a favourite trail, park or even a treadmill at home and ‘race’ your distance, your way.
Enable residents to live life to the fullest everyday. Your donations ensure safe compassionate care, purchases vital medical equipment, provides quality recreational and creative arts programs and so much more to address resident priority needs. Let's go the distance for seniors care!
