The Cape Breton Fiddlers Run is located on the beautiful island of Cape Breton, along Sydney's waterfront.  Known for its "giant fiddle", Sydney is full of vibrant, friendly runners who will welcome you with a smile. This flat, paved course runs along Sydney's downtown waterfront and serves as a Boston Marathon qualifying race. Runners will be joined by some of Cape Breton's talented musicians to provide encouragement along the way.

On September 10th participants can take part in the Fiddlers Race Expo held at the Victoria Park Armouries from 12-6pm. Race kits can also be picked up during this time. Online registration will be closed on September 8th at midnight. Registration is also available during the expo between 12 and 6pm.

Participants will enjoy a pre-race pasta dinner. They will also receive a dry fit running shirt, and a one of a kind medal, designed by a local artist. The race will be professionally timed by www.limitlessracetiming.com.
