Join us on Saturday, June 6, 2020 at 6pm for a chip timed 5K that you can run or walk. There is a HUG station, chocolate station, cheer/water stops, music on course, fire fighters and simply put, the prettiest finisher’s medal you’ll ever get. Plus, you get to pick the amount of swag you do or don’t want (tutu? technical tank? short sleeve shirt? race wrap? no swag?). Your race, your choice.
Perhaps you love tutus, or maybe you’ve never thought much one way or the other. We have a very specific reason for running in tutus and for giving them out at Sole Sisters. If you do not know our story please take time to read our story here.
This has been our course since 2017 because we thought… 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 – you’re welcome ladies!
While we personally believe in the mantra of “FINISH LINES NOT FINISH TIMES” we have heard from so many Sole Sisters that we know our participants want the Saturday night 5K to be timed. So for our June 6, 2020 event we will be timing all runHERs and walkHERs. If you would prefer to not be timed we will offer you the ability to be listed as an official finisHER with no time in the registration process. However, all participants will be timed by default.
We have all of our 2020 designs completed and samples are in hand. However, we are going to wait until after all our fall events to show them to you! Your patience will be rewarded! Until then, check out below to see what we’ve offered in the past.
The June 1-2, 2019 Sole Sisters Women’s Race Weekend Expo will take place at Hearthstone Inn (our host hotel) located at 313 Prince Albert Road. Race-kit pick up will be held Friday, May 31st from 4:00pm – 8pm and Saturday, June 1st from 1:00pm – 5:00pm. During Saturday’s expo hours we will have a GET GLAM SALON STATION by First Choice Haircutters!

Kaitlyn Beaver Nutrition, Health & Wellness discusses the role of a personal trainer in your wellness journey. Nova Scotia College of Chiropractor members Dr. Christina Bagnell (Basin View Chiropractic/ Strada Health & Fitness) and Dr. D’Arcy Stonehouse (Brickyard Health) offer an interactive guide to foam rolling and other fun ways to avoid injuries! They’ll bring lots of foam rollers and lacrosse balls for you to try! Stephanie Brown, physiotherapist of Choice Health Centre explains how Pelvic Floor Dysfunction impacts runHERs and walkHERs it is not exclusive to mothers. Common symptoms are leaking when you laugh/run/jump, frequent peeing or urgency to pee, pain with intercourse, prolapse of pelvic organs and more. But you can do something about this beyond kegels.

Not sure where to park for Sole Sisters? There is street parking throughout Dartmouth but we ask that you do not park at the Superstore as they have limited parking for their customers. Ample parking is nearby at Mic Mac Mall but do not park right by the entrances instead choose the outer parking lot which is actually closer to the Sole Sisters race site. Enjoy a leisurely walk over to the race start.
[/We know many of you ladies will do your own thing and that is cool, like totally cool! The evening promises to be the best girls night out you’ve had in years! Either from visiting the restaurants in the beautiful city of Dartmouth, the various room-parties that we know take place! Need more suggestions? Check out Downtown Dartmouth, Destination Dartmouth and Destination Halifax! **We will announce our specific SoleSisters AFTER PARTY VENUE closer to the race!**
