Milder Weather For This Year’s Richmond Run

Milder weather made the 2024 Richmond Run much easier for the runners and volunteers as the annual 10k and 5k road races kicked off the Ottawa running season. Scott Henry, wearing the Philadelphia Flyers shirt, defended his title in the 10k run with a time of 34 minutes and 22 seconds. Erin O’Higgins was the first woman to cross the finish line with a time of 40:52. Simon Yin won the 5k run in 17:10, while Barrett Goold was the first woman to cross the line in 17:51. The race began and finished in front of South Carleton High School.
