Registration and Race Kit Pickup

For most participants you will be the first face-to-face contact runners will have with Run Ottawa. Your expertise, friendliness, helpfulness and patience will form that critical first impression. In the eyes of the participants you’re a representative of the race and an ambassador for our city.

Registration and race kit pick-up occurs over three days from May 23rd to May 25th in the Shaw Convention Centre located at 55 Colonel By Drive. You will be asked to do one of two main tasks; hand out race kits or event specific t-shirts. A typical shift is 4 to 5 hours in length, dependent on the day. Food will be provided to all volunteers except those working Thursday, May 23rd.

You may work as many shifts as you wish – just let me know your choice of shift(s) upon submitting the request below. Once you submit a shift request(s), assume you will be scheduled for that time slot unless I contact you by email.

Information notices will be sent to all race kit pick-up volunteers explaining where to meet, parking, etc.
