For this occasion, our partner Johnson Insurance will donate $20 per registered participant* to the University of Ottawa’s Mental Health and Wellness Fund. Come run with us for the cause!

*up to 300 registrants.

Here are the steps to follow in order to access the University of Ottawa campus. It is the responsibility of each participant to complete each step in order to participate in the race.

  1. It is mandatory that everyone in the uOttawa community – students, faculty, and staff – certify their vaccination status using the COVID-19 Vaccination Declaration online tool whether they intend to come to campus or not.
  2. Once they have received confirmation from uOttawa that their Vaccination Declaration has been registered, every person who receives confirmation that they are permitted to come to campus will need to follow these additional measures:
    1. In accordance with Ontario Government regulations, every person must fill out the COVID-19 Daily Health Check-In form online before coming to campus and must receive confirmation they are permitted to come onto campus.
    2. Once on campus, everyone is required to strictly comply with all protocols issued by Ontario Public Health, including wearing a mask, keeping a safe distance from others, and washing hands frequently.
