This weekend I was part of an all-female team at the Rum Runners Relay which is a 10 stage running relay that starts in Halifax and winds along Nova Scotia’s South Shore to Lunenburg. The relay is an annual event, first started in 1985, that occurs on the last Saturday in September with 70 teams enter each year, usually with 10 members per team.

Our team was named “Mountain View RunHERS” and we represented a broad range of runHERS. From teens that have only started to discover their long-term talent to gals running their fastest times ever and finally to those just hanging on after 30 years racing (okay that last part was biased and describes ME).  Our team captain made team shirts that said: “Nice Girls. Mean Legs.” And the nice part couldn’t have been truer about my teammates (more on that below).

Welcome to the sisterhood!

With our sixth Sole Sisters Women’s 5K in the books we wanted to take a moment to welcome all the first time participants to the sisterhood! As a Sole Sister you are now part of a large community of runHERs and walkHERs.

Over the past six years we have done some amazing things and that is because of girls and women just like you. So you should be proud of your new community. Just think, approximately 18,000 girls and women have taken part in a Sole Sisters event making Sole Sisters the largest women’s 5K in Canada. And that happens right here in the Maritimes! (more…)

Tutu’s Taking Over Dartmouth

For the sixth consecutive year, Canada’s largest Women’s only 5K will be taking over Burnside this Saturday, as 3,000 purple-clad women hit the pavement.

A sea of purple t-shirts and plaid purple tutu’s will be seen for miles, as thousands of women run in solidarity; as a community, as friends, as strangers, as Sole Sisters. The Sole Sisters Women’s Race presented by Soles In Motion, was created to provide an inclusive experience for women of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness levels – in fact, one year over 24 race participants were over 70 years old! On June 10, 2017, the untimed 5K event welcomes walkers and runners to experience the thrill, pride and joy of crossing a finish line.   (more…)
