2019 Race Weekend

 Sole Sisters Women’s Race Weekend: Saturday, June 1 & Sunday, June 2, 2019

For 2019, we’re shaking things up! 

For our 8th Annual Sole Sisters Women’s Race – one night just felt too short, so we’re turning into a weekend-long event! Our Saturday evening 5K Walk/Run will stay the same, but we’re now adding a timed 5K, Quarter and Half Marathon to the very next day (instead of October)! That’s right, 2 days, 4 events – it’s going to be awesome. 

Race on Saturday night… or race on Sunday morning… or go BIG and take the Tutu Challenge (two races, three medals, two swag items and a tutu!).

Wait, that’s not all. This year’s theme is “Girls Just Wanna Have Run” – an homage to the greatest song ever – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! Get ready to embrace the 80’s, try on those legwarmers, dust off your neon, backcomb your hair, and find your scrunchies, fishnets, headbands or anything with padded shoulders.  And yes, those are real Sole Sisters participants from 2017 above (thank you race photos!).

There are no changes to our usual June Sole Sisters 5K.  The Saturday, June 1, 2019 5K will continue to happen at 6pm on Saturday night and it remains untimed! We welcome newbies and veterans alike with a HUG station, chocolate station, cheer/water stops, music on course and firefighters waiting with the prettiest finisher’s medal you’ll ever get.

What’s new? Our fall races are moving to the next morning of Sunday, June 2, 2019!.  You can choose between a 5K, Quarter Marathon (10.5K) or Half Marathon (21K).

Ok, you spoke – we listened! We’ve officially launched our Tutu Challenge! 

Race Saturday night, and any of our Sunday races and you are in for more bling! Our Tutu Challengers will walk away with 3 medals, 2 swag items AND a tutu. 



Each year, we work with our partners and friends to bring you Sole Sisters specials! In the past, our Sole Sisters have received discounts to Lululemon and Tommy Hilfiger! 

Exciting things happening here, but we can’t tell you just yet! 

If you’re going to participate in a race in the summer of Nova Scotia, why not have the most beautiful views possible? Gorgeous Lake Banook, Sullivan’s Pond, Dartmouth and Graham’s Grove!

Details coming soon!
