Registration will still be available on site Saturday August 20, 2016 This year it will be at the Five Islands Lighthouse Park. It will be a Fun Filled Festival Day with live music, interpreted talks, and much more! Complete details at a later date.

PLEASE NOTE:   If you register by July 22, 2016 you will be guaranteed a shirt.  After that it will be first come, first served.  Also new this year we will be having womens and mens shirts and not unisex! 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  After July 22 there will only be Men's and Ladies sizes Medium and Large to choose from and only while quantities last.

Once or twice each summer on a weekend, the sea parts in the MinasBasin of Nova Scotia, dropping in six hours from 15 meters to nearly zero. When that happens,  we start running. The 5K course loops out and back from Sand Point in Five Islands while the 10K course starts at Soley Cove and finishes with the 5k at Sand Point.  Both runs have spectacular scenery!  The Basket Run for the kids is a wonderful experience for those under 12.  Buses will transport both 5k and 10k runners to their starts and parking for all (including volunteers and spectators) will be at the ball field in Five Islands, Highway #2 and well marked, with experienced volunteers directing you to your parking spot.

Children 12 and under cannot run without adult supervision!
