Begins with a four kilometer race, followed by a two kilometer race and ends with a 100-meter toddler dash, these distances are designed specially for Little Miss Sole Sisters!
On Sunday, October 1st after the bulk of the 5K, Quarter & Half Marathon participants have finished their races and while we are still celebrating those achievements; the Little Miss Sole Sisters races will begin.
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 our 2017 Little Miss Race!
We’re inviting all girls who are 18 and younger to try this event – you just need to pick your event. Little Miss Sole Sisters will take place on a closed course (no traffic allowed on the roads we are using for the girls races) that is safe and secure.
All local Little Miss Sole Sisters will need to pick up their kits on Friday, September 29th, 2017 (3:00pm-7:00pm) or Saturday, September 30th, 2017 (11:00am-3:00pm) at Mic Mac Mall (21 Mic Mac Boulevard, Dartmouth, NS B3A 4N3). If you are travelling from out of town, on race morning we will have late kit pick at BAGGAGE CHECK (6:30am to 7:30am).
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.
From 12:30pm to 2:00pm join Athletics Nova Scotia and Women Active NS for a fun participatory track and field based event. This event is for females only, aged 8-12, that have never tried track and field but are interested in learning more about it. These younger participants will do a warm up with 2008 Olympian Adrienne Power and take part in a 60m sprint, 600m run, shot put throw and long jump. Participants are also encouraged to bring a mom, older sister, friend or relative to take part in the fun as well, and we will have a separate participation event just for them! We will have information on hand on how you can get involved in track and field in NS and some fun giveaways. And, the event is completely FREE! Event goes Rain or Shine!
