Did you hear? Are you ready for it? The first annual Run Like A Mother Half Marathon, 10 km and 5 km road race is coming to Nelson on May 5. And the event will support a good cause – the Kootenay Kids Society.

The Half Marathon is a beautiful course that takes you to all the gems of Nelson. You will experience Baker St, B.O.B (our big orange bridge), Horlick Point, and the historic Great Northern Rail Trail. This race starts and finishes at Hall St Plaza. Nelson is known for its hills so be prepared to climb 1700 feet throughout the 21 km.

This 10 km race has  some epic waterfront views along Bealby Road where you turn around at Horlick Point and head back downtown along the Fairview neighbourhood bikeway.

The 5K is a fun out-and-back run along Nelson’s new Fairview to downtown neighbourhood bikeway.
