All of our races begin at 45 Graham’s Grove in Dartmouth and showcase the City of Lakes by travelling alongside Lake Banook and Lake Micmac. The 5K course does not go into Shubie Park but if you are participating in the Quarter or Half Marathon then you’ll also be treated to the beautiful Shubie Park. All races finish with the stunning view of the small peninsula that juts out into Lake Banook and creates a view with water on three sides!
The park is not surprisingly located in an area of Dartmouth called Graham’s Corner, which is on the southeast shore of Lake Banook, where Prince Albert Road intersects with the Circumferential Highway (Hwy 111). If you’re headed eastbound on the Circ, take exit 6A onto Prince Albert Road. If you’re headed westbound, take exit 6, then turn left onto Prince Albert Road. The parking lot will immediately be on your right.
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!
There are no refunds. The race does offer a deferral option and the ability to change race distances. For 2019 we are following the lead of the largest event in the Maritimes, the Blue Nose Marathon (thanks!). Like them, we do offer registration deferment to future years. However, as a non-profit, we must find a way to recover out-of-pocket costs to order items for each runner in two separate years (i.e. t-shirts, medals, tutus). Please note there will be a modest fee of $20 to all registrants to defer their entry to the next year. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to welcoming you back!
You can also take advantage of the Transfer Option if you would like to change distance. This only applies to the Sunday race that has 3 race distances. You are not able to transfer from the Saturday 5K to Sunday’s races. Return to your Race Roster account and change your race information to the race of your choice. There is a fee of $1.95 to transfer to another race distance. If you are transferring to a higher race distance (for example: 5KM to 10.5KM) you will need to pay the race price difference at time of transfer. If you wish to transfer your race registration to another person, please follow the same process. Refunds do not apply. PLEASE NOTE, ONLINE TRANSFERS CLOSE MIDNIGHT MAY 10, 2019.
After May 10th all transfer requests will occur on race weekend at the Race Kit Pick Up/Expo on Friday, May 30th or Saturday, June 1st. No transfers will be processed on Sunday morning. Applicable transfer fees will apply on race weekend; $10 for transferring down in race distance or person to person transfer and $15 to transfer up in race distance.
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 ([email protected]).
