We are thrilled to announce that Run Ottawa is once again sponsoring the prizing for the Senior Mens and Womens team event. Run Ottawa is the National Capital Region’s premiere running organization and the organization behind the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend and their flagship event of the weekend, the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon. They boast not one but two IAAF Gold label events in their roster of races.
|Thanks to their support, we are providing a cash award of $2,000 to the winning club team in both the Senior Men's and Women's races.
In 2015 the winning teams were Speed River (Men) and Physi-Kult (Women). Will they return to defend their titles?
Run Ottawa has also worked with one of their partners, Beau's All Natural Brewing Company and each winning team will receive a sample pack of Beau's offerings.
Cross Country, prize money and beer, what's not to like about that?
