MEC Ottawa Race 2 – Spring Gallop

The Spring Gallop 5k & 10k runs were held this morning at the scenic Nepean Equestrian Park.  Parking was easy and free (always a bonus) and the sun was shining making it feel a bit warmer than the 4C that it was. The cool temperatures didn’t seem to deter anyone and a number of runners were spotted wearing shorts and shirts only. One brave soul even ran topless!
