The toughest part can be the loose stones. They can be a problem on the sharp downhill turns at the bottom by the gate and again at the left hand turn towards the Navy base. Also on the whole of the "up" hill. In the past they have graded the course beforehand which only made the stones looser and harder to run on. I usually run on the grass next to the path on that steep uphill. It's easier.
Another one of Ottawa's faster races, run in mid August. The run is in the Arboretum of Ottawa's Experiemental Farm. A three loop course, along some nice scenic paths. The race has a pretty good following, with some of Ottawa's faster runners coming out for the event. It's a 6pm start, so you might have to adjust some things to be race ready.
