Ottawa Runners: where do you run?

It's winter time, my first winter running season. So where do you guys
run (long run I presume) in weekend? I have a bit trouble with the snow.

Well, don't ask this guy: http://tinyurl.com/a2lt7

I can't help either, I've never been to Ottawa. Good luck though.

Ottawa, of course!

I used to do laps in the experimental farm.
It is about 2 miles around. Elsewhere the roads are dangerous and
slick. The sidewalks are unreliable. Some people run on the canal with
screws in the soles.
But realistically - your running season is done. Do what I did - take
up cross country skiing in the gatineau hills.
Then move to california like I did. Yesterday I actually had to put a
t-shirt on.

Don't you mean "mental farm"?

Where I am, there's enough snow to make life interesting. One has to improvise
a bit at times.

I tend to run in parks during the rest of the year, and some of the park
trails are maintained during winter much like the roads. Central park closes
off the road to the traffic. Roads in other parks are open to traffic but at
least fairly quiet, and intersections are less frequent than on open road.

Of course Ottawa may be completely different.

Here in Hamilton it snows a lot, but there's never a problem
finding roads to run on because they get plowed.

In really bad snowstorms I am reduced to main streets for a
day or two until they get to the side streets, but that's about it.
