Run for a New Start – Register for 2021 Virtual Ottawa Race Weekend Today! 

Please join our team of runners and walkers and help raise funds to support a great cause! All funds raised will go to support OCISO’s newcomer youth programs (YOCISO).

NB: for 2021, there are NO organized races. Each runner/walker selects a distance (2km, 5km, 10km, half marathon, marathon) and aims to run or walk that distance sometime in May 2021, either solo or in a safe-distanced group. More information can be found on the Virtual Ottawa Race Weekend website:  


As part of Run for a New Start you can register for any of these distances and you can walk or run, either solo or in a safe-distanced group:

  • 2km
  • 5km
  • 10km
  • Half Marathon (21km)
  • Marathon (42km)
