Now that spring’s here it feels so good to get out in the sun, move around and get in shape! Ottawa is an awesome place for getting out in the sun from our incredible downtown patios to our beautiful green belt! If you want to get out and get moving check out these great events in Ottawa!


For a large city, Ottawa has plenty of beautiful green spaces that make it a true destination for runners! Take advantage of that natural beauty by signing up for the Ottawa Sporting Life 10K run on Sunday, May 12! The run follows the scenic Rideau Canal for one of the most gorgeous, contemplative runs you’ll ever do. Even better, the event is a fundraiser for Camp OOCH, an Ottawa based summer camp for kids living with cancer! You can have fun and feel good doing it.


It’s Canada’s largest Marathon Expo! Taking place May 23-25 at the Ottawa Convention Centre, Health and Fitness Expo Ottawa brings together the cutting edge of fitness experts and equipment retailers so that you can explore what it takes to push to the next level! Find out about innovations in technical clothing and shoes, learn about advancements in diet control and so much more! If you want to be your very best, check it out!


This is one of the biggest footrace events in Canada! The Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend that takes place on May 25-26 is actually several separate races taking place on the same weekend. The biggest race is the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon – one of the largest qualifiers for the Boston Marathon in Canada – and the Scotiabank Ottawa half marathon, but if you’re looking for something a litte more manageable there are also 5k and 10k fun runs!

When in Ottawa, make the most of your stay by booking a room at the Best Western Premier Ottawa City Centre. Close to the action and Ottawa’s historic Byward Market, we’re perfectly situated for all your adventures in the nation’s capital!
