Ottawa O-Fest is back for 2021! The two-day event is scheduled for October 16-17th (the weekend after Thanksgiving) in the south-end of Gatineau Park. What better way can you think of to spend an October weekend in Canada than running around in the woods of Gatineau Park?

This year's event will be a little low-key compared with previous years in the sense that we will not have a chase start, food at the finish line, and a kidzone. However, you can expect the same high-quality courses that you are used to!

We will be adjusting start times and arena set-up to accommodate COVID restrictions that are in place on race weekend.
