About the Run

2K Kids, 5K and 10K Races to Raise Money for Team Broken Earth

The Feel it in Your Bones Run is about showing appreciation for our great Canadian medical care and sharing it with those less fortunate in underdeveloped nations. All proceeds from the fun run and BBQ will go to support Team Broken Earth Ottawa in its upcoming medical mission to Port au Prince, Haiti.

All Races will be Chip-timed so you can track your progress towards reaching your goals

Why Join the Feel it in Your Bones Run?

Share our Great Medical Care with the People of Haiti

  • We all feel the pain of injuries sometimes, but thankfully we have access to great healthcare in Canada--unfortunately, not all countries do.

  • Team Broken Earth is a nonprofit group of doctors, nurses and physiotherapists that volunteer on their own time to provide medical assistance and training in places that lack the kind of healthcare services we are accustomed to in Canada.

  • Broken Earth's Team Ottawa will travel to Haiti this November to provide much needed orthopaedic care, where some people wait for months with broken bones and other life-­changing injuries before seeing a doctor.

Get a Free BUFF and Enjoy the Free Post-Race BBQ Party

  • Everyone loves free SWAG!
    All registrants for the 5K and 10K races will receive a Custom Edition Team Broken Earth BUFF, a chipped race bib, and a meal ticket for the after-race BBQ.

  • Take part in fun activities with the kids and enjoy live music by a local Band!

What is a BUFF?
A BUFF is the original stretchy tubular multifunction accessory that can be worn in 12 different ways to help protect you in your outdoor activities. It dries quickly and is breathable. Wear it as a headband in the summer to trap sweat and help prevent sunburn, or in the winter as a facemask against the wind.

Share Your Own Recovery Stories - Wear a Broken Earth Tattoo

  • We know the drill, you missed the last step running to answer the door for an Amazon delivery and broke your ankle...or you didn't see the crack in the ice on the canal and broke your elbow....or you signed up to play hockey with the guys from work and tore a ligament in your knee. 

  • We all have stories about the injuries we've endured and the care that we've received. Share yours on race day by sporting a Broken Earth tattoo on all your own 'broken' parts. Don't worry, there's no limit to the number you can wear, because there's no limit to the care we can receive in Canada--and we want to share it with those who aren't so lucky.

Fundraise for Team Broken Earth

Ask Family & Friends to Sponsor Your Bones!

As a participant in the Feel it in Your Bones Run, you will have the option to help fundraise for Team Broken Earth by collecting pledges from family and friends to sponsor your bones. They can purchase one bone, two bones, or maybe even one of your special bones!

We invite you to create your own donation page where you can set your donation target and track your pledges. As an incentive, if you raise at least $300 in donations, you will receive free entry to the race.
