Canadian Post Race Newsletter

Thanks for joining us at The Canadian! 

What a great day it ended up being. We can't thank you enough for signing up and for bringing your friends & family to spectate. We had a great crowd all day! 

Despite already completing the race, we have some perks to remind you about.

Free Race Photography from Intercede Communications

Intercede Communications is pleased to support Somersault and you in immortalizing your race finishes. They provide free downloads of your race photos from both the Thousand Islands and Canadian Events.

Please support us by taking a minute to support our sponsor. We encourage you to check out their website and consider them for your communications needs. 

Thanks to them, you can download your images for free, by clicking this link.

Follow us on social media to see when the photos are live or check the link above. There are a few thousand photos to edit, to it'll likely take a few days for them to go live. 

Free Bike Fit from MyVeloFit

Just for signing up, you were emailed a promo code for a free membership with MyVeloFit. Their virtual bike fitting software is a new Ottawa-based company that's making it easier to fit your bike from anywhere. Learn more about them here

Lost and Found:

We have a few small items that we found today. If it's yours, let us know and we'll find a way to reunite you with your gears. We have

-Some waterbottles-Some towels-A fuel belt

One last thank you to our volunteers:

The St. Matthews High School Football team cannot be thanked enough for all their help on Saturday. Volunteers are the cornerstone of our local events and if you ever want to see a race from a different point of view, consider volunteering! 

Results:

The results are live a few moments after you cross the finish line, and you can see them all at Sportstats.ca. If you need anything corrected, you can email corrections@sportstats.ca.

What's next?

Our last event of 2022 is just over one month away. The Fall Colours event is one that you won't want to miss.

Join us on October 9th for the most scenic event in the Ottawa area. Running distances from 1K to 42.4K gives everyone the option to participate in a beautiful run through the quiet roads of Cumberland. 

We even have a 1K Wedding Dress Dash where you can test your skills against our very own Race Director. This will be a rare opportunity to race a Somersault event again Adam Kourakis, as he races the 1K Wedding Dress Dash with his wife's dress. October 9th happens to be his 1 year anniversary with Elizabeth, so we hope to see you there to participate, cheer, or heckle! 

Help us spread the word

If you had a good experience today, a Google Review would mean the world. As we come back from 2 years off, we're hoping to grow this series in a few different ways. An online review would really help us grow so that we can bring some of our ideas and improvements to life.
