Halifax Independent School’s Ocean Breeze Trail Run offers runners the unique opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a trail run without having to partake in specific trail run training. Hosted at the immaculately maintained Atlantic View Trail, runners who are new to trail running will find an easy transition from traditional paved surfaces to this spacious, crusher-dust surface.
