June 5K

Join us on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at 6pm for an un-timed 5K that you can run or walk.  There is a HUG station, chocolate station, 3 (THREE!) 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 your own swag! Check out our registration site for your options, you could get a purple, women’s cut, technical t-shirt, shoe BLING or/and a TUTU!

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.

Race & Location

This is a new course for Sole Sisters 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!

After Party & Hotels
