Following a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ottawa Fire Truck Pull is returning to Lansdowne Park this fall.
The in-person event will see teams of 10 attempt to pull an Ottawa Fire Services (OFS) fire truck 100 feet. Teams will compete to see who can pull the truck the fastest, raise the most money and demonstrate the most team spirit.
The event also serves as an important fundraiser for Epilepsy Ottawa, the sole agency in Ottawa and surrounding rural communities with a mandate to improve the quality of life for the 10,000 people in the region living with epilepsy.
"The Ottawa Fire Truck Pull is an exciting day where families, friends, and co-workers test their fitness and earn bragging rights," said Nikki Porter, executive director of Epilepsy Ottawa. "We invite all members of the community out for a unique fitness challenge."
The event is set for Saturday, October 8 and registration is now open.
