Dartmouth Natal Day Road Races 2019
A Natal Day Festival Event and Run NS Series Event
Welcome to the 113th 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 selected for the 2019 Run Nova Scotia Road Race Series.
The 6 Miler is also included in the 2019 Run Nova Scotia Performance Series and is expected to attract a competitive field of many of Nova Scotia's fastest runners.

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.
