The 2013 ITU (International Triathlon Union) Duathlon World Championships has partnered with Ottawa Tourism and TrojanOne Ltd. to present the Sens Shuffle, a 5km charity run in support of the Sens Foundation. The event will be held on Saturday, August 10, as part of the race weekend taking place in Ottawa from August 8 to 10.
Open to the general public, $6 of the $55 race entry will support the Sens Foundation, whose aim is to raise funds in communities throughout eastern Ontario and western Quebec. Monies raised will focus on providing social recreation and education programs and facilities that promote physical and mental wellness. In addition, racers are encouraged to collect pledges of which 100% of the donation will go to the Sens Foundation.
With the option to run, jog or walk, Sens Shuffle participants will get to experience a one-of-a-kind race course located in Canada's Capital City, Ottawa. The course starts in front of the Canadian War Museum and heads west along the Ottawa River into a loop on the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway. Closed to traffic, racers will enjoy the picturesque views and the city's landmarks from the world-class course. Interested participants are encouraged to register before August 7.
