Main street Manotick (where the Finish and Start line is and further South down RideauValley Drive.  Corner of Century Rd and First Line for the 10 Miler and 5 Milers. 

Dr. Leach and Beaverwood Rd. is a great spot to see them come down to the finish.

If you are a Manotick Resident and live in the Manotick Estates on Potter, Eastman, Carrison, Pettapiece, Beaverwood, Whitewood, Watterson - these streets will be filled with runners so sitting at the end of your driveway is great!
