Thanks to the fantastic support of from our running community, the Maritime Race Weekend has completely sold out with more than a month to go until race day. As your training plans get underway and thoughts begin to turn to running the province’s first sunrise race, we now offer you this surprise gift – YOU will be able to sleep in an extra half hour on race day!
The 10K, half-marathon and marathon will now start at 7:30am on Saturday!
We originally told you the races would start Saturday at 7:00am, but the tremendous amount of activity in town on race morning has moved us to push the start back by a half hour. Hartlen Point Golf Course, our neighbour on the run route, is hosting a large golf tournament on race day that begins at 8:00am and we would hate to make anyone late for their tee-off time! The communities of Eastern Passage and Cow Bay have been so supportive of our race that we are happy to accommodate them with this change.
Don’t worry though, the race routes, start/finish lines and all festivities will remain the same. The bonus sleep just means you will have a little more energy to enjoy them!
Runners… we can hear you cheering already!!
