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…)

This International Women’s Day – Stop Waiting

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.

The companies often hear too many women say they want to get in better shape before doing their first 5K, or they want to lose a few extra pounds before getting those sexy photographs taken – and it’s time to #StopWaiting. (more…)

Go Tutu Girl

What right did they have to say that running could only be serious and that if you weren't fast you shouldn't be running? Ugh, it made me mad. Really mad.

A Powerful Picture

When we first saw this photo we cited it as being the most moving racing photo we’ve ever seen.

As we look back on the year (or on the first five years of Sole Sisters) we still feel that there simply has never been a picture as powerful as this one.
