Ulnooweg Summer Solstice Run

It’s that time of year again, when the longest day of the year brings people together to celebrate the beauty of life and the value of community.  After a few successful inaugural events in 2016, 2017 and 2018, Ulnooweg is proud to support the Ulnooweg Summer Solstice Run once again! This year, our run is taking place on June 22, 2019. 

We are going to continue having the options of a 5k, 10k, and a kids 2k run this year. Fuel up with post run pancakes at the Summer Solstice Breakfast Social (runners will receive tickets for hot breakfast, additional tickets can be purchased for family and friends).  Want to walk?  No problem!  Walkers are welcomed in the 5k Run.

Please note - we will be having registration and kit pick up the night before on June 21, 2019 from 4-7pm at The Hampton Inn & Suites in Millbrook, NS. If you are unable to register the night before, we will have registration open the morning of the even from 7-7:45am.

Let's celebrate the Summer Solstice and National Aboriginal Day together!

Please join our Running Community in celebrating healthy living and experiencing the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation.

There will be no refunds.
