Ottawa Race Weekend 2020

Ottawa Race Weekend 2020

We thought you might be interested in joining us at the 2020 Scotiabank Charity Challenge at the Ottawa Race Weekend next May. We’re going to train, have fun, exercise, participate in a fabulous race, receive gifts, win medals and raise money for our charity at the same time.

Start of our very popular 10K Race. Many people on our team were walkers

We’re raising money for Canadians Sharing Locally and Globally in this Charity Challenge. We improve nutrition, education and health outcomes in rural South India. We’ve been supporting charitable work in South India for almost 20 years now and have seen a tremendous improvement in the lives of people living in poverty in and around the small village of Thirumalaikodi, Vellore District, South India. 

Your support means we can further our work providing food ingredients, medical equipment, scholarships and educational equipment to improve the living standards of people living in poverty. 

Please help us by donating to or joining our team. Your friends can support you in your race as well! We’re mostly walkers with a few runners as well in 2K, 5K, 10K half marathon and marathon events. 100% of your donation will be invested in India. To get started, please register for the race and sign up for the Scotiabank Charity Challenge at the same time:

If you can’t join us, please consider making a donation to help support Canadians Sharing Locally and Globally’s great work in India. 100% of your donation will be invested directly with Canadians Sharing’s programs that improve health and education in rural India.
We’ll be happy to guide you through the online donation and registration process, 613-832-4618. 

Waiting patiently for the start of the 5 K race.

The Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend is home to Canada’s largest marathon and features 6 unique running events attracting over 35,000 participants, 2,500 volunteers, tens of thousands of spectators resulting in an economic impact of over $27 million annually to the National Capital Region.

Race Weekend also supports the efforts of runners and donors from over 60 local and national charities who raise over $800,000 annually through the Scotiabank Charity Challenge. We hope you’ll mark your calendars and get ready to run, cheer or volunteer, May 2020. This is your race!
