Sole Sisters Women's Race Weekend offers Little Miss Sole Sisters on Sunday, June 2, 2019. We are inviting all girls who are 18 and younger to try this event – you just need to pick your distance 100 meters, 2K or 4K. You can decide on race day if you are WALKING, RUNNING or a combination of both! You do not have to be a runner, you just have to be a GIRL! These races are not timed, they are meant to be fun!
Each participant will receive a race bib and a medal for her race. The first 100 registrants (not the adults) will also receive a Sole Sisters drink tumbler.
If you would like race shirt in both GIRLS and LADIES sizing (*these are not unisex*) with our favorite tag line borrowed from Girls Gone Gazelle Run Club: "I don't chase boys, I pass them!" on it those will be for sale for $15. There will also be tutus for sale.
Little Miss Sole Sisters 2K & 4K walk/run races are entirely on the Trans Canada Trail. So we hope that all girls will be running confidently on their own. But, we will allow an adult to accompany their Little Miss Sole Sisters. We are going to start each event with a girls only wave start then wait a few minutes before the wave including adults. Adults will need to register for this but there is no swag so there is no charge.
Beginning at Graham’s Grove the course utilizes the Dartmouth multi-use trail that parallels the Shubenacadie Canal, Lake Banook and Lake Micmac and proceeds one kilometer where the participants turn and return the way they came (for an out-and-back course). The 2K is one loop and the 4K is two loops.
The 4K will go at 10:30am; the 2K will go at 11:15am and we'll finish off the event with a 100-meter dash at 11:45am. Many of the Sole Sisters racing in the 5K, Quarter & Half Marathon will have finished or be finishing when the GIRLS start their walk/run and we believe both can inspire the other. And most importantly CHEER for each other!!
Multiple loops can be hard to keep track of but we think we've found a way to make it easy: 2K = 1 loops; 4K = 2 loops. This format is the only way we could offer a GIRLS only race that we felt was the most secure and safe course! This has the advantage of also allowing the girls to see and cheer for each other throughout the event! Hello high-fives throughout the race!!!
I am a Girl that runs! What is your super power?
Capes, tutus, costumes, whatever you want to race in is highly encouraged. Dress for fun!
No swag offered to the Adult but we do need you to register (for free) so that you sign the waiver.
You will not get a race bib or any swag, this is just to let us know who is being accompanied
Little Miss Sole Sisters is part of the overall Sole Sisters Women's Race Weekend. We hope you will join us for your own race too!
