Sole Sisters Women’s 5K
Run or Walk with us in beautiful Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

Join Canada's largest women's only 5K that supports Girls Gone Gazelle Run Club (an empowering and free program for girls 8-13) as well as other worthy charities.

Sole Sisters is an un-timed 5K that you can run or walk. We welcome newbies and veterans alike! There is a HUG station, chocolate station, cheer/water stops, music on course and fire fighters waiting with the prettiest finisher’s medal you’ll ever get.

*NEW* for 2018 every participant receives a Tartan Race Wrap (see picture below) to help us celebrate that Sole Sisters has an official tartan! Yes, that is this year's shirt too!  The new tutu design is shown during registration and the finish medal will be shown on our website very soon. But we have to make you wait for some things right?

5K VIRTUAL REGISTRATION (This has nothing to do with the June 9, 2018 event)

VIRTUAL RACE REGISTRATION HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR JUNE 9, 2018 RACE! The VIRTUAL CATEGORY is for Sole Sisters that are not local or simply can't join us at our race but would like to do their own Virtual Sole Sisters 5K between July and December 31, 2018. Regardless of when you register, we mail the Virtual Kits on JUNE 18, 2018 (which is AFTER the Dartmouth event). Virtual Kit includes a Sole Sister Bib + Medal + Shirt + Tartan Race Wrap. The VIRTUAL RACE KITS will be mailed starting the week of JUNE 18TH. Do not select this category if you are interested in the June 9th race. *Also, we do not mail kits outside of Canada unless by prior arrangement to cover the international shipping fees.*


As this is a fundraiser for Girls Gone Gazelle Run Club there simply are no refunds. No exceptions.

However, you have options if you descover you can't join us after registering.  

(1) You can pick up your kit (or have a friend do this) and particpate virtually when it works for you.  You can get a medal from the Race Director anytime in Dartmouth after June 11th;

(2) You can transfer or sell your entry up until May 17th at 11:59pm.  Keep in mind that you are responsible to find your replacement, collect your payment the fee to transfer is $1.95. Changes to previously selected sizes may or may not be allowed depending on time of transfer.

**This is the first year we won't be offering deferals because of the time it takes  to manage the list from year to year. It's not just email correspondence as, we usually have to call at least 10% of the list and send mulitple emails before we finally connect.**

All purchased merchandise will be available at the race kit pick up, not mailed with one exception. The only item to be mailed is the SECOND Tartan Race Wrap if purchased.


Sole Sisters Women's Race Series has the mission "to postively influence the mental and physical health of women and girls through physical activity." Sole Sisters funds the FREE confidence club: Girls Gone Gazelle Run Club which has the motto: "I don't chase boys, I pass them!" and looks to promote confidence and body acceptance while building a girl's knowledge of excercise.
