Your finish line has the most spectacular view of Lake Banook with or without this mobile cheer section in a Dragon Boat! In 2019 we moved our fall 5K, Quarter & Half Marathon races to Sunday, June 2, 2019 to be a part of the new Sole Sisters Race Weekend.
*STAY TUNED FOR OUR 2023 PLANS WHEN THE QUARTER & HALF MARATHON RETURNS. IN 2022 WE ONLY HAVE A 5K ON OCTOBER 1, 2022.*
Since 2016, the Sole Sisters 5K, Quarter (10.5K) & Half Marathon (21K) has been the first and only women’s 5K, Quarter and Half Marathon in Eastern Canada. Not only is the Sole Sisters course beautiful (we run through Dartmouth, the City of Lakes) but all those lakes allow us to have very creative cheer stations eh?!
Just like previous years, the Sole Sisters 5K, Quarter & Half Marathon on Sunday, June 2, 2019 is on the 2019 Run Nova Scotia Race Series. So if you are a member of Run Nova Scotia you’ll receive a $5 discount when registering. It also means that gals can acquire age group points by participating in either race and guys or gals can acquire points by volunteering.
We truly believe in “Finish Lines Not Finish Times!” so when you register for Sunday’s races, we will give you the choice to be chip-timed or to be listed as an OFFICIAL FINISHER (with no reference to time).
Sole Sisters Women’s Race Series is proud to have been an Athletics Canada Supporter with the inception of Sole Sisters Quarter & Half Marathon in 2016. When the course moved in 2017, it chose to follow the same Athletics Canada certified course as Epic Canadian Quarter & Half Marathon to utilize their certification. Therefore, we can assure you our race courses have been accurately measured according to international standards and the measurement data is reviewed by an accredited certifier.
In 2017 we left behind the Burnside Industrial Park (after five years of fun but not very pretty racing) for the gorgeous City of Lakes, Dartmouth. We love the blue, orange, red, green and purple! Walk or run with us around this stunning course, surrounded by lakes, trees and our favourite of all the colours – Sole Sisters purple.
Our 2016 swag was pretty awesome too…

This will require that you know the course and have your own nutrition/liquids until 8am when all volunteers are set-up and the races have begun. But, this option may remove unnecessary race day stress. Remember we believe in Finish Lines Not Finish Times!
