21st Annual Beat Beethoven Race Route Description:

The course starts on Wellington Street at Vimy Place in front of the War Museum and heads west on the Ottawa River Parkway to just before Island Park Drive, where runners are diverted through the parking lot, under the Champlain Bridge and onto the recreational pathway. The 8K runners turn around about 350 metres (approximately) west of the bridge, turn around and head back to the finish.

The half marathon continues along the pathway past Deschenes Rapids Lookout and diverts westbound towards Britannia and takes the pathway past Britannia Beach. The 10K mark is just before the Belltown Dome arena and the half marathon turnaround is at a point about 75 metres past Kempster Street (Kempster Street runs between Carling Avenue and ends just before the pathway).

Proceeds from this race will benefit Harvest House Ministries.
