Welcome to the 112th Edition of the Dartmouth Natal Day Road Races. 

Our event is one of the oldest road races in North America. Competitive runners, recreational runners and walkers are all encouraged to participate. We take pride in being a fun and affordable event for the whole family. The course is a two mile loop and runners have the choice of running a two mile or a six mile race. 

Both the 6 Mile and 2 Mile races have been on the Run Nova Scotia Road Race Series and the 6 Miler has been on the Run Nova Scotia Performance Series

Our 2018 race entry fee remains at the low price of only $20 for adults and $5 for youth, age 17 & under.

A $5 discount on adult registration is provided for RNS members who register by August 3rd.

Adult entry includes a t-shirt to the 1st 900 to enter. 

The youth entry does not include a t-shirt, but you may order one separately for only $10. 

An administration fee in addition to the entry fee will be charged for online registration.

The course is open to traffic but is well controlled by police and course marshals for your saftey. After 9:30 AM we may lose some police support and traffic will be heavier as the number of participants on the course declines. If it will take you more than 1:15 to complete the race, please move to the side of the road and be cautious, particularly for the last mile along Portland St and Alderney Dr. The finish line will remain open until at least 10:00 AM.
