Maritime Race Weekend is for everyone to enjoy!

By Michelle Kempton (Cow Bay Resident, Event Organizer & Runner)

As a resident of Cow Bay, I picked our community as the location for Maritime Race Weekend, because I believe it’s a wonderful place to live and beautiful part of Nova Scotia.

Things you may not know:
• this is a not-for-profit event, donating to local community groups:
o Ocean View Continuing Care Centre
o The Beacon
o Seaside FM
• 50% of the net profits are being given to Fisherman’s Cove and the other half will go to not-for-profit run clubs
• 2 of the 5 board of directors live in our community

In 2012 + 2013, Maritime Race Weekend sold-out months before race-day. Both years, some of our neighbours unfortunately missed registration to our hometown event, because it was already full + I DON’T WANT THIS TO HAPPEN AGAIN!!! In the first 14 days – 60% of the spots filled.

Please help spread the word to your neighbours. This race is just as much for our community, as it is the people visiting. Community members are encouraged to run, walk, volunteer or come out and cheer as spectators.

Thanks in advance for your help for getting involved! Please mark the marathon date of September 12 & 13 in your calendar and join the fun.
