Ottawa Event Photographer :: Ottawa Marathon 2013

This past weekend was Ottawa Race Weekend and the streets of downtown Ottawa filled with runners and spectators. Our friend Will was among the thousands who competed during Sunday’s marathon. Accompanied by his wife Laura-Lee, Will travelled to Ottawa looking to improve on his personal best. Laura-Lee and myself decided to take Sunday morning off and watch the race. We had a good time cheering on the runners from the sidelines, walking along the marathon course and getting mid-morning beavertails! It definitely made me want to make the leap from half-marathons to attempting to complete a full :).

Will did great, with a final finish time of 04:49:00. Below are a few photos from the day. Enjoy!
