LUNENBURG 5KM ROAD RACE POSTPONED
Dear runners, walkers, sponsors, and community members,
Due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 crisis, the 2020 Lunenburg 5k Road Race and Muffin Run will be postponed to June 13th, 2021! At this time, we want to help flatten the curve by following the rules of social/physical distancing now and into the following months.
The Lunenburg 5k Road Race, which serves as the West Nova Fuels Soccer Club fundraiser, will not be going forward this year for the safety of our participants and volunteers in our community. We would like to thank all our loyal runners, volunteers, Run Nova Scotia, Atlantic Chip and most of all our small business owners that have always supported us in our community run/fundraiser. It is now our turn to help support our local businesses in our community. They have always been there for our event. We now have to be there for them.
Per our cancellation policy, those runner/walkers who have already registered for the Lunenburg 5k Road Race will see their registration deferred to the 2021 event, to be held Sunday, June 13th, 2021.
Thank you for understanding,
Lunenburg 5k Committee
We are back in June for the Muffin Run. Yippie! We are part of the Run Nova Scotia Race Series again this year. If is a fantastic opportunity to do a 5Km walk or Run while taking in the sights of 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.
Race registration is $27.00, with discounts for RNS members and Lunenburg County residences.
This event is organized by the West Nova Fuel Lunenburg United Soccer Club with the assistance of the Bluenose Striders Running Club.
