It’s a year for celebrations as Canada marks its 150th birthday. Algonquin College is proud and excited to continue with our 50th anniversary celebrations!


Registration includes: AC50 Colour Run & Walk Swag Bag, t-shirt, access to AC50 Market Place, race tracker chip from SportStats, tour of the Early Learning Centre, Warm-up Stretch and Cool Down Class and a 2km or 5km route! The college was formed in the year 1967, hence the special registration fee. Proceeds raised will go towards the Algonquin College Foundation 

 WHAT: The Algonquin College 50th Anniversary Colour Run and Walk is a great way to celebrate the College’s past, present and future. It’s all about pride, making connections, giving back, and diversity... all while being outside and getting active! The event follows a designated 5K run (2 laps) or a 2K walk (1 lap) on the College’s Ottawa campus that you can preview on the diagram below. 

WHO: The Run and Walk is perfect for students, employees, retirees and alumni – and all who wish to celebrate Algonquin College’s 50th Anniversary in a fun, active and colourful way! The 2km walk is perfect for all ages and families. 

WHEN: Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Arrive by 9 a.m. to take part in our Warm Up stretch hosted by Fitness and Health Promotion Students and a surprise guests! The 2km walkers begin at 9:25am and 5km runners begin at 9:30am. 

WHERE: Student Commons Front Lawn (E Building) at 1385 Woodroffe Avenue, Ottawa. Parking is free in lots 8 and 9 only.


OVERVIEW: When the start buzzer sounds, our AC50 Colour Walkers begin their travels through the route. Our AC50 Colour Runners are queued up next and begin moments after the walkers take off! All walkers and runners are covered in GREEN colour at various spots along the route.  The colour green - which represents Algonquin College - is applied with ecofriendly and easy-to-remove coloured corn starch. The route shows off Algonquin College Ottawa campus buildings, services, and green spaces.  

With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow: 

1. Wear white at the starting line. 

2. Finish plastered in green colour!



CAMPUS ACTIVITIES: After runners and walkers complete the route, the celebrations continue at the AC50 Market Place! It’s fully equipped with music, a 50th Anniversary popup shop, a cool down class (led by our very own Fitness & Health Promotion Students), the Amazing 50 Campus Tour, games hosted by the Students Association and more!


The map above outlines the route at a glance. Remember, it is 2 laps for the runners and 1 lap for the walkers. There are route attendants and signs to guide your way!


Amazing 50 Campus Tour: 
Whoever you are, wherever you are, check out the Amazing 50 Campus Tour before and after the Run & Walk. The Tour trailer is touring Ontario, making stops at each college along the way, and it stops at Algonquin College this day!  Inside the trailer, visitors can:

  • Take the amazing facts pop quiz
