Kanata to Bank Street Run   

Looking for another running event? Try the Kanata to Bank Street run on May 4. It's the last Running Room-sponsored long distance training run (32km) before Ottawa Race Weekend.

The run starts at the Grant Crossing Running Room (5507 Hazeldean Road) and ends at the Taggart Family Y. There are four water stations along the course for runners to refill their water bottles. A shuttle will be provided to the start of the run. Paid parking is available at the Taggart Family Y. Runners can take the shuttle from the Taggart Family Y to Kanata at 7:30AM.

The Kanata to Bank Street run is open to everyone. The cost to participate is $30, which is donated to the Y to support the Y Kids Academy, a free program for Grade 6 students that combines strength and cardiovascular sessions with classroom instruction on healthy, active living.
