Online accommodation service StayBillety extends contract with Run Ottawa

CAMBRIDGE, ON (DECEMBER 19, 2016) – StayBillety and Run Ottawa announce today they have extended their affiliate contract through to Fall 2018.  The agreement became effective October 1st.

With this agreement, StayBillety continues to be the Official Online Accommodation Service of Run Ottawa. The site serves runners year-round and for the organization’s marquee events: Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend and the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon

In addition to connecting like-minded guests and hosts, StayBillety gives back to groups, organizations and charities. In support of the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend’s Scotiabank Charity Challenge, StayBillety will donate a portion of associated bookings to the Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization’s (OCISO) Run for A New Start: Going the Distance for Refugees program.

“2017 is a huge year in Ottawa, and there is a huge demand for accommodations especially during Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, which is the city’s largest tourism event,” said Run Ottawa President and Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend Race Director John Halvorsen, “We think StayBillety is a perfect option for runners looking for a place to stay, and we hope Ottawa-area runners and fans will welcome these runners into their homes by listing their extra rooms on StayBillety.

StayBillety is a great option for local runners who want to meet and help out runners from out-of-town. Visiting runners will search for event-associated properties and save money on accommodation. Local hosts benefit financially and meet other runners from around the world.

“Run Ottawa came on board as a partner before we even launched,” said Barbara Jones, Founder/CEO of StayBillety.  “Their ‘long run’ commitment to us, as a Canadian start-up, really demonstrates their understanding of how our partnership can both serve and strengthen the running community and give back to charity.”
