FAQ

We have tried to answer all your potential questions but if we missed one, please email us at info@solesistersrace.com

Is there baggage check before/after the race?
June 10th, 2017 – Yes, you can leave a small bag at Premier Storage (610 Wright Avenue which is just across from the 5K start line) from 5pm to 8pm.

October 1, 2017 – Yes, you will find baggage check in the Sole Sisters tent that is on the all weather field adjacent to the race start. There will be a number of our charity partners, sponsors and more on the field to keep your spectators entertained while they wait for you to finish.

Where do runners and walkers line up at the start?
June: the Sole Sisters Women’s 5K starts adjacent to Action Car and Truck at 581 Wright Avenue, Dartmouth.

October: the Quarter & Half Marathon starts at 261 Commodore Drive, Dartmouth which is adjacent to the Harbour East All Weather Field. At Sole Sisters Women’s Race Series we celebrate all women and all paces. But, for safety reasons we ask that the faster women (which is usually the runners but not always) position themselves at the front of the event. If you are here to have fun then please let those keeners be at the front!

Can I get a refund, deferral or transfer my registration to someone else?
There are no refunds. However, you can defer your race entry to 2018 for a $10 fee.  Also, you have the ability to transfer or sell your race entry. Keep in mind that you are responsible to find your replacement, collect your payment with no changes to the sizes you previously ordered. The fee to transfer is $5.
What if the race is cancelled?
Race Day Cancellation: We will delay the start time, postpone or cancel the race if race conditions are deemed unsafe for the participants. We will not cancel the race for “uncomfortable” conditions, please come prepared for any weather. If weather should cause cancellation, your entry fee will not be refunded. Sorry, there are NO REFUNDS.
Are dogs allowed?
We love dogs. Heck we even named a race after our favorite dog (The Benny Bulldog 5K Trail Run in Shubie Park) but we do not allow dogs to participate (even girl dogs are excluded from Sole Sisters Women’s Race)!
What is the minimum age allowed to run?
For the 5K, children under the age of 6 are not eligible to register. Children between the ages of 6-10 years are permitted to run the 5K race, but must be accompanied along the route by a registered participant over 18 years of age. Parents/guardians not registered for the race are not permitted to run/walk the route with their child.

For the Little Miss Races we feel the 2K & 4K distances are best suited for girls 6-18 and encourage girls 5 and younger to do the 100 meter dash. However, we will allow you to self select for your child.

For the Quarter & Half Marathon, children under 14 are not eligible to register unless they have received prior approval from the Race Director (stacy@solesistersrace.com).

Is our shirt size guaranteed when we register?
We make every effort to insure you receive the shirt size you requested during registration but shirt sizes are NOT guaranteed.
Do you have a cancellation or waiting list?
Unfortunately, we do not have the staffing required to manage a cancellation list.
What are the payment options?
All Sole Sisters events have registration online with payment by credit card. If you would like to pay by cash, check or eTransfer then send an email to stacy@solesistersrace.com for instructions.
Are strollers allowed on the route?
Strollers are only allowed in the June 5K and are not permitted in the October races. This is for the safety of all runners and walkers. We do not allow Strollers for the Quarter or Half Marathon.
