The Diefenbooker Classic is a 5k and 10k road race that helps promote healthy living in the community as well as raise funds for the West Carleton Branches of the Ottawa Public Library.
For those who wish to participate in the walk, but are unable to manage the 5 km distance, drivers will be available to return you to the start after each kilometer.
During the race, runners and walkers are directed through the blast tunnel of the “Diefenbunker”, the former National Defence facility now known as Canada’s Cold War Museum. Cyclists travel fully paved routes through rural West Carleton township. The short races will be held within the Fairgrounds in Carp. All routes are well marked.
