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 through three awesome events: Little Sisters 3K; Sole Sisters 5K and Sole Sisters Quarter & Half Marathon that occur annually in June and October.

LittleSisters3K

Lil’ Sisters 3K – Saturday, June 11, 2016 at 11:00am. This ALL-GIRLS event is for girls 6 to 18 years old and will be an untimed 3 kilometer run or walk on a portion of the Sole Sisters Women’s Race 5K that happens later in the day.  By reducing the distance from 5K to 3K we hope to entice more young girls to “try” the Lil’ Sisters event which will offer the same level of fun, sense of accomplishment and awesome bling but for GIRLS only.  Can you imagine if we became the largest Girls-Only run in Canada? Talk about an empowering event!!June 11 2016 5K

Sole Sisters Women’s Race 5K – Saturday, June 11, 2016 at 6:00pm. This is the largest women’s only 5K in Canada and it is a bucket-list race per Canadian Running Magazine.  Due to the popularity of this event, we strongly suggest you register now to guarantee you don’t miss out (10% of the race capacity was reached in June 2015 for example and the race has never remained open past February).  This event is NOT timed and is for walkers and runners alike.  There are three water stops that are more like cheer stations; fire fighters at the end of the race giving you your finishers medal; a hug station, DJ on course spinning tunes, chocolate station and simply the BEST RACE SCHWAG AND MEDAL EVER.

Sole Sisters Women’s Quarter (10.5K) & Half Marathon (21K) – Sunday, October 2, 2016 at 8:00am join us at Atlantic Canada’s first ever, women’s only Quarter (10.5K) & Half (21K) Marathon.  Details including the course map and elevation profile will be updated soon.  Our intention with this event is to provide an encouraging environment for women to test themselves through a longer event. But we did want to tell you now that unlike the 5K (which is not timed) we are going to let you decide if your Quarter or Half Marathon race is timed or not.   For some women having an official finish time will be important but for others it could prove to be too intimidating.  At Sole Sisters we believe in celebrating FINISH LINES NOT FINISH TIMES!  If you would like an official finish time we will provide chip timing and if you’d prefer to not be timed then you will be listed in the results as a FINISHER, period.

Finally, if you do both Sole Sisters events in 2016 you will receive extra Sole Sisters race schwag.  How about a third beautiful medal to celebrate  your achievement? We did this recently when our Sole Sisters participated in the Epic Canadian Run For Canada they got this super cute 2nd medal. We liked seeing Sole Sisters with 2 medals so you can be sure to see more of that in 2016!
