The Sole Sisters race course has always been good, but this 5K, Quarter and Half Marathon course takes it to a new level.
Our Sole Sisters deserve the best; and today it’s official – we’re done with the grey and have brought in the blue, orange, red, green and purple! Walk or run with us around this stunning new course, surrounded by lakes, trees and our favourite of all the colours – Sole Sisters purple.

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…)
Two Halifax business women come together for International Women’s Day to launch their new campaign #StopWaiting!
The #StopWaiting Campaign encourages Women to… well you guessed it… stop waiting. Sole Sisters Women’s Race and Halifax Boudoir Inc. are challenging women across Nova Scotia to do something they’ve been waiting for, this International Women’s Day.
