Bluenose Race Route (10k)

Today I am hitting the pavement with my oldest daughter, Lillian…a.k.a Lilly. She’ll be four next month, ran her first race last year (400 m) and has been asking to do a race again! I signed her up for the Bluenose Marathon Kids Run – 2k and am planning to run it with her. I’m pretty excited 🙂 You can keep an eye out on Instagram for us while we hit up the Expo and her run. I’m looking forward to spending some one on one time with my big girl.

Tomorrow’s the big day for me – 10k. I’ve run this race before, the 5k, 10k and 1/2 Marathon but it’s been years since I did the 10k and I am aiming for a sub 60 – fingers crossed.

The 10k Route

{or as Piratebobcat calls it: The Double Dolichos or Stockholm}


This is what the 10k route looks like, fairly flat at the beginning and then the fun starts with the bridge. Up and over and then Nantucket Ave is a long – long hill. Once that is done there is a little flat lap and then back down Nantucket up and over the bridge again towards the finish line with a few hills!

Wish me luck…I think I’ll need it 🙂

Good luck to all those running and walking in the Bluenose Marathon in Halifax, NOVA SCOTIA and also those running elsewhere.

Kick it up and enjoy!

Do you check out the route before a race?

Have you ever gone into a race not knowing the route?

Do you like a combination of hills and flat parts or just flat ?
