About The Cookie Run

Everyone loves to run for the Cookies! For 17 years we’ve been proud to bring you Ottawa’s Cookie Run with our good friends from Bushtukah in support of the local Girl Guides.

It’s the last major run before the big snow flies and a great way for runners of all ages and levels to wrap-up the year! There’s nothing better than getting a Girl Guide cookie as you cross the finish line!

Great shirts and medals make the day even better…..we’ll see you there!

You can keep up to date with news on this run and other Run Ottawa events by following us on Facebooktwitter and Instagram.

We also hope you’ll consider becoming a member of Run Ottawa. Everyone is welcome! Great people, great runs and great benefits…find out more here!
