Races & Events
Every year, Run Nova Scotia helps to support road races around the province.
One aspect of that is the Run Nova Scotia Road Race Series. This is our core series that offers races from one mile to the marathon, in locations from Yarmouth to Louisbourg.
The Run Nova Scotia Road Race Series races are open to all comers—elite athletes to the weekend warriors, Run Nova Scotia members and non-members alike. Each race is there for all to experience the thrill of participation and the joy of crossing the finish line.
