Run Ottawa is Ottawa’s premier running-events organization, attracting runners from the National capital region and all parts of Canada. This organization annually hosts Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend and numerous other events such as the Canada Day Road Races. Each year thousands of participants enjoy these inspirational community events.

Run Ottawa is governed by a board of directors, comprised of volunteers with a wide range of expertise and experience. Each year, the Board seeks new directors through a nominations process that culminates in an election at the Annual General Meeting.

We are very interested in hearing from you if you are interested in learning more about this board. There are many qualities that members of the community can bring. Current and past members have brought expertise and experience in many areas including business, government, marketing, law, finance, public relations, healthcare, and service industries. Many of the Board members have had previous experience in governance as well.

We invite you to contact us, and we are available at any time during the year to receive inquiries and expressions of interest. The Board presents many exciting challenges and activities, and it is our hope that members of the community will view this opportunity as engaging and satisfying.

Feel free to contact Executive Director Ian Fraser ([email protected]) or our Nominations Committee Chairperson Patrick Girard ([email protected]).
