Little Miss Sole Sisters

 

Registration is now open for the Little Miss Sole Sisters Races on Sunday, June 2, 2019. We are inviting all girls who are 18 and younger to try this event – you just need to pick your distance 100 meters, 2K or 4K. You can decide on race day if you are WALKING, RUNNING or a combination of both! You do not have to be a runner, you just have to be a GIRL! These races are not timed, they are meant to be fun!

Little Miss Sole Sisters race kits will be available at the Sole Sisters Expo which 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; Saturday, June 1st from 1:00pm – 5:00pm and on site at the race start at 45 Graham’s Grove on race day from 9am-10am.

On Sunday, June 2, 2019 after the bulk of the 5K, Quarter & Half Marathon participants have finished their races the 4K will go at 10:30am; the 2K will go at 11:15am and we’ll finish off the event with a 100-meter dash at 11:45am.

Many of the Sole Sisters racing in the 5K, Quarter & Half Marathon will have finished or be finishing when the GIRLS start their walk/run and we believe both can inspire the other. And most importantly CHEER for each other!

Little Miss Sole Sisters 2K & 4K walk/run races are entirely on the Trans Canada Trail. So we hope that all girls will be running confidently on their own. But, we will allow an adult to accompany their Little Miss Sole Sisters. We are going to start each event with a girls only wave start then wait a few minutes before the wave including adults. Adults will need to register for this but there is no swag so there is no charge.

Beginning at Graham’s Grove the course utilizes the Dartmouth multi-use trail that parallels the Shubenacadie Canal, Lake Banook and Lake Micmac and proceeds one kilometer where the participants turn and return the way they came (for an out-and-back course). The 2K is one loop and the 4K is two loops.

At Sole Sisters, we believe that running promotes confidence, body-acceptance, socialization and… it’s FUN! Sadly, 29% of our adolescence are at an unhealthy weight, and only 4% of girls achieve the recommended daily levels of physical activity. Make this something the whole family enjoys, and join us for a Little Miss Race!

Our timeline is late enough that girls travelling from out of province can participate as well as to allow most Sole Sisters to finish their races before the Little Sisters start. The 4K will go at 10:30am; the 2K will go at 11:15am and we’ll finish off the event with a 100-meter dash at 11:45am.
If you have an empowering event that you would like to bring to the June 2, 2019 Little Miss Sole Sisters Races please get in touch with [email protected] For example in 2017 we had an additional event where Athletics Nova Scotia and Women Active NS invited girls for a fun participatory track and field based event that included 2008 Olympian Adrienne Power.
