5k, Quarter & Half Marathon

This previously annual stand-alone series of races is moving to Sunday, June 2, 2019 to be a part of the new Sole Sisters Girls Race Weekend. You can read all about those  plans HERE and we will be updating this section of our website after June 9, 2018.

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 1, 2019 will apply to be 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.   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 & Location

Our Sole Sisters deserve the best; in 2017 we left behind the Burnside Industrial Park 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…

Race 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 one level one of Mic Mac Mall (21 Mic Mac Boulevard, Dartmouth, NS B3A 4N3). Enter from the Bank of Montreal entrance and we are located directly beside Justice.  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.
