Kids Run Route
The 1K Kids Run begins on Laurier Boulevard in Gatineau, just north of Jacques Cartier Park. Participants head northeast on Laurier and turn right onto a pathway, following the Ottawa River under Highway 5 with gorgeous views of the Ottawa River. The route turns back to Jacques Cartier Park, finishing with the cheering crowds in the Hbc Family Fun Zone.

The Hbc Run for Canada is a great activity for kids to share with their parents and an exciting way to spend Canada Day. Children also learn great lessons in fundraising, what it means to be Canadian, and the importance of physical activity.

Every 1K Kids Run participant will receive a FREE Technical Running Shirt and will be awarded a special Commemorative Participant Medal from a local Canadian Athlete at the finish line. Plus, kids can also enjoy a day full of fun including on-course and post-run entertainment - and more!
