Sole Sisters Women’s Race Weekend:
Saturday, June 1 & Sunday, June 2, 2019
Run or Walk with us on a single day or over two days.
City of Lakes, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
Our 8th Annual Sole Sisters Women's 5K Walk/Run on Saturday night (June 1, 2019) has not changed!
There are no changes to our usual June Sole Sisters 5K. The Saturday, June 1, 2019 5K will continue to happen at 6pm on Saturday night and it remains un-timed! We welcome newbies and veterans alike with 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.
What's new is that our longer distance races are moving to the next morning on Sunday, June 2, 2019. You can choose between a 5K, Quarter Marathon (10.5K) or Half Marathon (21K). Those races will be timed unless you tell us not to time them. Finish Lines Not Finish Times right?!
And for the frequent raceHER and bling enthusiasts, you can enter The Tutu Challenge in which you race on Saturday night and any of the Sunday morning races for additional bling. This category includes 3 medals, 2 swag items and a tutu.
After you decide how many races you want to do (one or two), then you pick your swag (choose from 4 possible shirts, toque, tutu or now swag). How fun is that?
THESE RACES CAN ALSO BE DONE VIRTUALLY BUT YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW THIS LINK TO REGISTER.
**If you are purchasing a gift registration contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with a graphic you can print and give as the actual gift. We have several designs you can choose from. Don't forget to give the registration code provided by Race Roster as that is used to finalize registration. Your gift recipient needs to register still.**
Where does the money go? Our not-for-profit uses the revenue generated by Sole Sisters race after race expenses to support Girls Gone Gazelle Run Club (an empowering and free program for girls 9-13) that trains throughout the year (spring, summer and fall) in Halifax and Dartmouth. The confidence club is always free to it's participants. That's right Sole Sisters pays for everything, the team uniforms, race fees, coaches shirts, track fees, and everything in between. We'd love to invite your Gazelle to join us by simply signing up here: www.girlsgonegazelle.com.
Girls Gone Gazelle Run Club is the not-for-profit that Sole Sisters supports, but the race also donates to other amazing not-for-profits that operate a water/cheer/chocolate stops. If you have a group that is interested in learning more about how to get a donation for your volunteer's time, email email@example.com. And finally, since we get the question all the time. You do not need to do any additional fundraising beyond participating in the event.

LATE REGISTRATION from May 13-May 28 BASIC 5K Saturday, June 1, 2019 includes medal, bib (not personalized) with no additional swag. Expo will have cool Sole Sisters items for sale, like tanks and tutus so worry not!
There are no refunds. The race does offer a deferral option and the ability to change race distances. For 2019 we are following the lead of the largest event in the Maritimes, the Blue Nose Marathon (thanks!). Like them, we do offer registration deferment to future years. However, as a non-profit, we must find a way to recover out-of-pocket costs to order items for each runner in two separate years (i.e. t-shirts, medals, tutus). Please note there will be a modest fee of $20 to all registrants to defer their entry to the next year. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to welcoming you back!
You can also take advantage of the Transfer Option if you would like to change distance. This only applies to the Sunday race that has 3 race distances. You are not able to transfer from the Saturday 5K to Sunday's races. Return to your Race Roster account and change your race information to the race of your choice. There is a fee of $1.95 to transfer to another race distance. If you are transferring to a higher race distance (for example: 5KM to 10.5KM) you will need to pay the race price difference at time of transfer. If you wish to transfer your race registration to another person, please follow the same process. Refunds do not apply. PLEASE NOTE, ONLINE TRANSFERS CLOSE MIDNIGHT MAY 10, 2019.
After May 10th all transfer requests will occur on race weekend at the Race Kit Pick Up/Expo on Friday, May 30th or Saturday, June 1st. No transfers will be processed on Sunday morning. Applicable transfer fees will apply on race weekend; $10 for transferring down in race distance or person to person transfer and $15 to transfer up in race distance.
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 exercise.
