RUN or WALKSole Sisters Women’s Race Series celebrates the strength of female runners and the lifelong friendships developed on and off the running roads. Watch the above video to see just how AMAZING this event is! We dare you to watch the video and not smile.

And if you missed the fun in 2015, don’t fret. We are offering you the chance to do your own VIRTUAL Sole Sisters Women’s 5K from now until December 31, 2015.  You do this 5K on the day, time and pace that works for you.  If you have done Sole Sisters and know someone that is “almost” ready to race but needs some additional encouragement, why don’t you give her the gift of a Virtual Race and then join her?  Click on this image for more details and to register. Race Kits will be available at the Lucky 7 Relay expo on Saturday, November 7th from 12-4pm.

In 2016 Sole Sisters expands to three events.  Sole Sisters 5K (Canada’s largest women’s only 5K)  continues on June 11, 2016 but there will also be a series of Little Sisters Races (for girls 18 and younger) happening earlier in the day. And new for October 2, 2016 is Atlantic Canada’s first women’s only Quarter (10.5K) & Half Marathon (21K). Do both races and you will receive an extra 3rd medal.

Li’l Sisters Races  will occur on Saturday June 11, 2016 at 11am in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.  We will start with a FREE 100-meter dash; followed by a one-kilometer race and a three-kilometer race. In its inaugural year, the Li’l Sisters Races will be capped at 500 girls. These races will not be timed and every participant in the 1K & 3K will receive a shirt and medal (100-meter dash receives a ribbon). You can register here for the Li’l Sisters Races.


Sole Sisters Women’s 5K is the largest women’s only 5K in Canada and it happens at 6pm on Saturday, June 11, 2016 in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.   The 5K is not timed so you can run or walk it.  There is a HUG station, chocolate station, 3 water stops, DJ on course, fire fighters that give you your medal and simply the prettiest finisher’s medals we’ve ever seen. Do not wait to register as this event sells out many months in advance of race day. You can preview your race shirt and medal here but other “surprise” race bling will be revealed in 2016 – register here for the 5K.

The Inaugural Sole Sisters Quarter (10.5K) & Half Marathon (21K) is the only women’s Quarter & Half Marathon in Eastern Canada and happens on October 2, 2016 in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. 

There will be unparalleled support on course to get you through your BEST Quarter or Half Marathon. Depending on your race distance there are 10 to 20 music stations and there are 9 to 18 aid stations.   The route is comprised of wide boulevards to prevent over-crowding and the out and back portions give you a chance to encourage other Sole Sisters on course. 

This will be a very fast course for those women looking to be competitive.  However, we truly believe in “Finish Lines Not Finish Times!” so closer to the race date we will give you the choice to be chip-timed or to be listed as an OFFICIAL FINISHER (with no reference to time).  Register here for the Quarter & Half Marathon.
