Race Day Fun


The Chiefs’ Chili Cook-Off

Every year, we ask the chiefs of the Ottawa Police, Firefighter and Paramedics service to trade their caps and uniforms for chef’s hats and aprons and show us who’s got the best stuff in the kitchen.

Come give your taste buds a delicious post-race treat and see if Chief Di Monte will retain his title, because Chiefs Pingitore and Bordeleau are hot on his tail!

Don’t worry. If it gets spicy, we’ll have lots of tasty beverages on hand.

Fun for Kids

Aside from the 2K Race, there are tons of activities for kids and family at 9RUNRUN. From face painting to mascots to awesome prizes, bring the whole family to enjoy the race day atmosphere!

Entertainment & Music

No race day is complete without a soundtrack, so we provide the tunes at the start line and on the course. Last year we rocked out to the band Dirty Road. Members of Ottawa Fire Services.
