Please Consider Volunteering

By volunteering, you ensure your club continues to grow and provide great walking opportunities. Be Pro-Active by offering your services. Do not wait for someone to contact you. Contact the Trail Coordinator, President or Vice-President by volunteering to work the registration or finish table in (its easier than you may think and “many hands make light work”) or assume responsibility for the event by becoming the event coordinator. To find out more about being an event coordinator see the roles and responsibilities of an event coordinator.

The Ottawa Voyageurs will not be hosting any "Event" walks for the first quarter of 2021 as the club follows COVID protocols.
