Join our Run for a New Start Team Today!
We are continuing to recruit runners and walkers for our 2020 Run for a New Start. So far we have a dedicated team of 14, but know we will need many more to help us raise funds for our mental health support programs!

There are 92 days till Race Weekend, so you have lots of time to train and raise funds!
All you have to do is sign up for one of the events during Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend (May 23-24, 2020) and you become part of our team! 

Instructions on how to register for Run for a New Start and the link to the registration page can be found here .

Why I Run for a New Start?
If you are a registered Run for a New Start runner or walker, we encourage you to post a short video or written testimonial titled Why I Run for a New Start? on your social media to encourage others to participate. Don’t forget to include the #runforanewstart hashtag and link to ou r web page for more details.

Creating your own Team
We like to encourage friendly competition, so you can have your own team as part of Run for a New Start and track your team’s results. We currently have four such teams: Board of Directors, Mentorship, Volunteers and Run for a New Start. If you would like to create a team, please contact and we will provide details on how to do it. 

If you can’t participate in Run for a New Start during Race Weekend, but would still like to make donation to our campaign, you can do so here. You will automatically receive a tax receipt.
