5k, Quarter & Half Marathon

If you joined us in June and are planning to join us in October… you’re in for a treat… all Sole Sisters that register before August 13th get an extra medal. That’s right. Two races = three medals!

 

The Sole Sisters Quarter (10.5K) & Half Marathon (21K) is the first and only women’s 5K, Quarter and Half Marathon in Eastern Canada and happens on Sunday October 1, 2017.

The Sole Sisters Quarter & Half Marathon is a part of the 2017 Run Nova Scotia Race Series. 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, 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 be an Athletics Canada Supporter. Athletics Canada believes that every runner deserves to run on an accurately measured course. With their certification 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.

 

Race & Route

Our Sole Sisters deserve the best; we’re done with the grey and have brought in the blue, orange, red, green and purple!  Walk or run with us around this stunning new course, surrounded by lakes, trees and our favourite of all the colours – Sole Sisters purple.

 

This is a new course for Sole Sisters because we thought… If you’re going to participate in a race in the fall of Nova Scotia, why not have the most beautiful views possible? If that’s not exciting enough for you, we’ve even found smaller hills – you’re welcome ladies!

Kit Pick Up & Hotel

All local 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).  To avoid long lines or any additional race day stress we highly encourage you to have a friend pick up your kit for you if you are not going to make it on Friday or Saturday.
