This is a great weekend for anyone looking to get connected and inspired by spending a weekend around an amazing group of Type 1s. All running levels welcome, as there are many ways to be a part of the team... or just come out to cheer!

You have two options when it comes to registering for the 2014 Ottawa Marathon Weekend with Connected in Motion:

(1) As a participant (running, walking, and/or cheering) with Connected in Motion (No fundraising element, event weekend costs will be covered by participant including race bib, team dinner and accommodation). 
(2) As a participant + fundraiser with Connected in Motion (Fundraising incentives are included below - All donations are 100% tax deductible!)

Registration is open to both Type 1s and 5.5ers (What's a 5.5er, you ask? 5.5ers are an important part of the CIM community - the friends, families, and supporters of folks living with Type 1 who makes are lives infinitely easier!) 

Don’t forget to visit the Connected in Motion Ottawa Race Weekend Facebook page to get some ongoing support and encouragement for your training and to get connected with your team. Looking forward to seeing you all in Ottawa May 23-25, 2014!
