Achilles Ottawa is a national capital-based running club which is creating a community of support for runners who are blind and visually impaired of all levels and backgrounds, as well as guide runners. Our primary objective is to bring hope, inspiration, and the joys of achievement to people of all abilities.
Where: 425 Marché Way, Unit #104, Ottawa, ON, K1S 5H6
COVID-19 Location: Experimental Farm
When: Every Sunday at 10:00 am
Weekly Group Run
We hold a weekly group run which brings our runners together for a workout, followed by coffee and conversation. Runners begin together, then break into smaller groups based on pace. We have guide runners who are able to meet any pace. Let's walk, run/walk, jog, or run at a faster pace together - you decide! If you are a guide (experienced or first-time), we welcome you to join us and to give guide running a try. Afterwards, everybody is welcome to stay around to have tea or coffee and to discuss members' workouts, how to improve the club, or just to socialize.
COVID-19 UPDATE: due to social distancing, we are currently hosting alternating weekly virtual workouts and in-person runs:
in-person runs are at our temporary outdoor location - the Experimental Farm - and we have an innovative method to run 6 feet apart
virtual workouts by Zoom!
