Event Description

The Ottawa Fall Colours Run has it all! New York and Boston Marathon Qualifiers; Beautiful Fall Colours in historic Cumberland Village, something for the whole family, including the 1K Turkey Trot and our NEW 1K Wedding Dress Dash.

The Turkey Trot:

Kids 12 and under can participate in the Turkey Trot, which is a 1K run around the grounds of the Cumberland Museum. Parents are welcome to tag along and help their little runners with the course. Strollers are welcome and you can opt to carry your child to the finish line if they need a helping hand. Regardless of whether they run, walk, crawl or roll to the Turkey Trot finish line, everyone in the Turkey Trot gets a finisher's medal.

The 1K Wedding Dress Dash:

October 9th, 2022 also happens to be the 1 year wedding anniversary for Elizabeth and Adam, the owners and Race Directors of Somersault. They thought it would be fitting to have a Wedding Dress Dash to commemorate the date. All ages, abilities, and genders are welcome. You can bring your own dress, borrow one, or buy a second-hand one from a Thrift Store. It'll be the same course as the 1K Turkey Trot and you'll start just before the Marathoners. 

The course is hard-packaged gravel, so while you'll be wearing a wedding dress, make sure you're wearing your running shoes! 

Sign up now for our first-ever Wedding Dress Dash!
