Hintonburg’s 5K foot race marks 10th anniversary.

[Ed this is the print edition version of the week earlier Web-extra…Web-extra (June 30, 2016): Ottawa’s funkiest, family-friendly road race is celebrating 10 years!; Come July 10th to Parkdale Park.]

Runners and walkers from all over Ottawa are getting ready to toe the line at the 10th Annual Cyclelogik Hintonburg Centennial 5K and Newswest 1K Kids Run on Sunday July 10, 2016. This fun, family-friendly event includes all the amenities of a big scale event: chip-timing, professional photography, water stations, prizing…bundled together with a warm community spirit and…cake at the finish line.

Important to note: We have a new course this year. This exciting new course takes runners down Wellington St. West. Be prepared for all streets along the course to be closed between 8:00 -10:00 a.m.

Also new this year is the Charity Challenge. Please consider supporting local charity teams—including Causeway, Salus and Dress for Success – participating in this event.

Visit hintonburg5K.ca for more charity profiles and details on how to support these teams.

We are pleased to offer the 1K Kids Run at no charge again this year. Donation jars will be available on site and at race kit pick up. 100% of the proceeds will go to youth programming in the community. Please consider donating if you can. Parents are welcome to run with their children on the course, or stand on the sidelines and cheer them on. Let’s make some noise for all the participants.

If you’re not running, consider volunteering—it’s a great way to take part. Please contact Lisa at hintonburg5K@gmail.com to get signed up. We hope to see you there.

Register at hintonburg5K.ca before midnight of Thursday, July 7, or in person on Saturday, July 9 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. while picking up your race kit at Cyclelogik, 1111 Wellington St. West.
