Hopewell Rocks 8k Race

Race Date – Sunday 20 May – 11.00am start time

We are excited to be back for year 4 of our Hopewell Rocks Multi-terrain 8k. In the last 3 years we have had so many people visit Hopewell for the first time because of the race and they love the park. Our race is entirely within the park boundaries and will feature a variety of surfaces including asphalt, gravel trails, grass, beach and stairs – and there will be beer at the end!

Hopewell Rocks is one of the leading Tourism destinations in Canada and located in the Bay of Fundy, home of the Highest Tides in the World so what better way to celebrate one of our wonderful tourism venues than by having a running race on the ocean floor at Low Tide.

As usual we will have our top quality finishers medals to the first 200 registrations.

We are excited to be back in 2017 for year 3 of our Hopewell Rocks Multi-terrain 8k. Hopewell Rocks is one of the leading Tourism destinations in Canada and located in the Bay of Fundy which is home of the Highest Tides in the World so what better way to celebrate one of our wonderful tourism venues than by having a running race on the ocean floor at Low Tide.

Latest News – We are excited to be working with K94 and Max 103.9 Radio stations in Moncton in the build up to race day on Sat May 20. Listen out for some on air race promos and with a bit of luck they will bring the station cruiser down to the race. Can’t thank Jonathan and Tosh enough for all their help at the radio station.

Its that time of year when we try to bring on board as many sponsors as possible for each race and I am delighted to say that Lakota Herbs have provided us with some draw prizes for race day. Nice to support a Made in Canada product with natural ingredients and Pumphouse Brewery are on board for their 3rd year with their amazing free beer to every adult finisher which could be their new Radler beer.

 

2016 Hopewell Rocks Race

The weather was perfect for our 2nd Hopewell Rocks 8k (ish) Multi-terrain race and with over 140 runners signed up we were in for a treat. Shelley Doucet and Jacques Gautreau set the early pace with Jacques just gapping Shelley and maintaining the gap all the way through the race. Sterling performances from Marcie Holland and Brenda Guitard both finishing in the top 6 overall and congratulations to everyone who completed this tough, challenging and fun course.
