"Say what? You are doing what? Running on the bottom of the Bay of Fundy while the tide is out? You gotta be kidding!" 

Nope, no joke, as runners from our past nine years can testify - and testify they do! Not Since Moses is a run for the ages, all ages, including competitive runners and fast nervous walkers. 

Adults and teens can choose from two courses:

  • a 5K which starts and finishes at Sand Point in Five Islands, Nova Scotia, running across a tidal river and out onto the exposed sea bed next to magnificent cliffs only seen by boat normally;
  • a 10K which starts at picturesque Soley Cove and finishes at Sand Point.

Buses will transport all runners, all volunteers and spectators to the start lines. The buses leave and return to the ball field along the main highway, which will be prominently obvious to all coming from either east or west.

Children: The Basket Run offers courses of 100 and 500 meters along the shore, in sight of parents and cheering spectators. Entrants ($12) get an official Not Since Moses shirt and a medal.

Where: At the spectacular vista of Five Islands. On the scenic Glooscap Trail, just two hours north of Halifax, one hour from Sackville NB. Sand Point juts into the bay, facing the dramatic five islands near the shore. 

When: Sunday, July 15, 2018.

Cost: Adult races, both 5k and 10k are $60. Children under 12 and those participating in the children's Basket Run: $20.

Prizes: To be announced.

Volunteers: We are helpless without volunteers. This is an intense event, very odd and our need for volunteers is critical, for safety and for guidance and spreading the joy.  If you or someone you know can help out the day of the run, please read more on the volunteer page. You get a free shirt and will have so much fun you will wonder why everyone doesn't volunteer.
