2022 Ottawa Race Weekend

May 1st - May 31st, 2022

It's time to lace up your runners and start training! Join Team Perley for the 2022 Ottawa Race Weekend. Whether you choose the Live Option or Virtual, get ready for fun, fitness, and fundraising to support the Seniors and Veterans who call Perley Health home! 

You can run – or walk! – the race of your choice: 2k, 5k, 10k, ½ marathon, or full marathon (or the exciting Bytown, Voyageur, and Lumberjack Challenges!)

If you choose to participate in the virtual event, you 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.

If you choose the live option, you'll join with other participants in racing in Downtown Ottawa on May 28th or 29th. 

Enable residents to live life to the fullest everyday. Your donations ensure safe compassionate care, purchases vital medical equipment, provide quality recreational and creative arts programs, and so much more to address resident priority needs. Let's go the distance for seniors care!
