ÉMILIE'S RUN 5K FOR WOMEN

Émilie’s Run is our women’s run honouring the memory of Émilie Mondor, the first Canadian woman to run sub-15:00 in the 5K and a member of Canada’s Olympic team at the 2004 Olympics. Tragically while living in Ottawa in the fall of 2006, Émilie was involved in a car accident that claimed her life.

The next year the race in her honour was created and since then it has been a major draw for Canada and the world’s elite female runners, like Natasha Wodak, New Zealand’s Mary Davies and Kenya’s Lucy Njeri Macharia. Canadian Rachel Hannah is the reigning two-time champion, and also set the course record of 15:57.5 in 2014.

While attracting an outstanding elite field, the run is open to all women and girls wishing to participate.

The day also features a 1K Kids Run for girls and boys ages 6-12.


Please note: Athletes competing with Wheelchair – This race takes place on fully closed paved roads and is well-suited for wheelchair racing. If you would like to participate using a wheelchair, please contact Joe Du Vall to register or more information regarding participation. operations@runottawa.ca
