We are excited to be back for year 5 of our Hopewell Rocks Multi-terrain 9k. In the last 4 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. For 2019 we will run the race on a slightly different route as we will take in the main beach section first before heading onto the trails and roads, this is so that we can have the race within the tide schedule. Don’t worry though we will still have all the great features that our athletes have loved over the last few years.
Thank you to everyone who raced with us on Sunday on a challenging day in Hopewell Rocks. It was a nice dry start, if a little breezy but ideal conditions for running but a downpour made conditions a little tricky for the runners a little further back in the field. Still, the weather did not dampen spirits and we had a record number of finishers. Our thanks to all our volunteers and sponsors and we hope to see everyone back with us next year.

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.
FREE PUMPHOUSE BEER TO ALL ADULT FINISHERS – we are thrilled that Pumphouse Bewery will be our main race sponsor again in 2018, Pumphouse have been supplying our athletes at Hopewell with a complimentary beer after the race each year and we are excited to continue with them through 2018. (excludes virtual runners).
