Lunenburg 5km Road Race and Muffin Run 2019
Muffins in May!!! Due to the Bluenose Marathon being moved to the June weekend we are going to be eating muffins in May. We are part of the Run Nova Scotia Race Series again this year. It is a great opportunity to take part in a multi-sport weekend in the South Shore with a Savour and Cycle on Saturday in Mahone Bay (https://sweetridecycling.com/) and the 5k run or walk through Lunenburg, A World Heritage Site. The 5k is now a fundraiser for the West Nova Fuels Soccer Club. It allows kids in the Lunenburg County to participate in a great community program.
The route will take you through a stroll through town starting at the community centre. Passing by the board walk an the Bluenose and many other working fishing vessels. Between breaths - Try to take in the sites of old buildings and salty air. The route takes you around the outside edge of town to see the Lunenburg Acadamy towering for all to see. Back into town for a downhill sprint to the finish line.
This event is always enjoyed by a large number of runners and walkers. There is a race t-shirt for first 400 paid registrations. We do not mail out the race t-shirt if you do not show up on race day. Sizes are given out based on first come and first serve on race day.
The Awards and Reception: Begins in Lunenburg Community Center, 10 minutes after the final runner finishes the race. It is here where the hundreds of homemade muffins made by the numerous volunteers are found that make this an even further special event.
Special Draw Prizes: Many draw prizes are donated by local merchants. We have also had the support of Oak Island Resort who has donated an overnight stay for two. There will be a Friday and Saturday night Run & Ride Rate at Oak Island Resort for $129 with entertainment on the Saturday.
