RUN CLUB traditionally takes place from 9:30-11am, every Saturday morning, from the first Saturday following the Russell Fair, through to the first Saturday in November.

We are still working on our 2018 fall program, with more details and registration information to follow.

Here is a snippet of what we did last season ...

For 2017, RUN CLUB will officially begin on Saturday September 16, however we may offer some pre-season training for our returning and incoming advanced runners prior to then.   Our season will culminate at Run Ottawa's Cookie Run on Saturday, November 4.  In between we will have a number of events that runners can participate, including the annual Russell Terry Fox Run, Russell High School's cross-country race (all grades), and the Eastern Ontario Elementary School Championships (by invitation).

Our home base is the track and open fields at Russell High School and behind the Russell Community Sport Centre, however we also take advantage of other great local running spots including:

  • the Nature Trail
  • Tweed Conservation Area Trail
  • Burton Conservation Area Trail
  • Loucks / Keith Boyd  Park

Registration for RUN CLUB is $85 and includes:

  • official RUN CLUB performance training top
  • at least one additional RUN CLUB  item (cinch sack, gloves, hat, etc)
  • post-training snack and refreshment following every Saturday session
  • registration fees for both the Russell High School meet and Run Ottawa's Cookie Run
  • registration fee for the 2018 Russell Run
  • additional training opportunities through the season
