About Us: Achilles Ottawa is a club whose objective is to empower runners who are blind and visually impaired along with their guides in an environment of support and encouragement. We are affiliated with Achilles International, a non-profit organization formed by Dick Traum in 1983 which today has chapters and members in over 70 countries. While Achilles Ottawa is primarily a running club for individuals who are blind or visually impaired and their guides, our door is open to everyone. We believe, in keeping with the philosophy of Achilles International, that sport provides a way to accomplish our main objective: to bring hope, inspiration and the joys of achievement to people of all abilities.
