One of the most scenic and well organized marathons in Canada, not to mention the biggest, the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon has elicited high praise from participants throughout its 45-year history. But Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, which takes place May 25 and 26 this year, is more than just a well run event in a beautiful city: the 10K and the marathon are both IAAF Gold Label races, and Ottawa is the only race weekend in North America (and one of only four in the world) to boast that distinction.

Registration is still open for the event, so if you’re interested, see here to get involved.
