Yves 's thoughts:

Swag was excellent for Canada's 150th year celebration! Shirt was white tech cloth with red profile of iconic building both in Ottawa on one side of shirt and of Canada on the other side of shirt. Medal was special in that the maple leaf in the centre spins around. Quite unique.

Aid stations set for every 3 km with water and electrolytes and pottys with gels, sponges and misters beyond the 12 km. Great volunteers serving those. Medics excellent as usual too helping runners in distress.

Tons of people cheering all along the route, some with sprinklers, freezies and hoses to help beat the heat. Well appreciated!

Scenery in the Canada's Capital is special with many iconic buildings and monuments, bridges, rivers, Rideau Canal, a world heritage canal, Lot of trees to offer shade and relax the soul. A very pleasant course with lots of variety!

Highly recommend to any runner. Many international elite runners trying to earn the big dollars if they break records. Earnings can be huge if they are successful.

Good party atmosphere as well.
