The 3rd Annual Shubie Classic 5K will take place on Saturday, April 13th, 2019 and is the perfect race to start the season! Set in scenic Shubie Park, this beginner-friendly event features an amazing volunteer team who encourage participants on-course as well as across the finish line’s “cheer tunnel”. 

Race MC Russell MacKenzie along with FX 101.9 TODAY'S COUNTRY and their sister station 89.9 The Wave FM will be blasting out race-day tunes and 3rd Degree Training will lead the pre-race warm-up. Registration includes Atlantic Chip timing services, a newly designed 2019 medal, and runner must-haves: Tim Horton’s coffee, Ginger Bread Haus Bakery treats, post race massages from our friends at Nova Physiotherapy, a grand draw prize valued at over $250, and so much more! 

Unique one-of-a-kind awards are being created for the event’s top male and female finishers. Even better? It is ALL in an effort to raise awareness about mental health with donations supporting the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia. Please plan to join our fun 5K to kick off spring! 

Our Goal:
To promote fitness, health, and participation as part of a healthy and active lifestyle in our community. We're excited to work with local sponsors to help make the event unique, and to support local businesses right in our community.
