Become a part of what is fast becoming one of the most prestigious road races in Eastern Canada -

THE ANTIGONISH HIGHLAND GAMES 5 MILE ROAD RACE

  The event takes place on the Friday evening of the longest running Highland Games in North America.

Since 1998 the event has attracted runners from across Canada and the United states.  They include all ranks of individuals - former Olympic participants, young, old, World University Games contestants, all - members of every walk of life.  We have had recovering cancer and infirmed patients who heard by word of mouth of the tremendously scintillating experience of participation! 

The course, mainly gravel, travels along the route known as Antigonish Landing.  The swaying trees, the background sounds of the bagpipes, the picturesque natural habitat of wildlife migration, and the setting sun off to the West, make it a breathtaking experience!  You inhale the aroma of the blossomed trees and the wild flowers, which cover the terrain alongside the course.  To the opposite side of your run, the tranquil waters leading into the harbour make it by far, one of the most picturesque, serene and undisturbed examples of Nature at its best!

Your pace almost makes you envision the early ships, which moved along the waters in a more “bustling” era headed into the local area to trade.  What more can one ask!  The magnitude of the peacefulness allows you to focus, relax and strive for your own personal best time! 

We’d love to have you experience real “SCOTTISH” hospitality and comradery in the Highland Heart of Nova Scotia.

Categories include:  Open-Male and Female, Junior - Male and Female, (18 and under), Masters, 40 years and over for both Male and Female.   Prizes include cash for the top three male and female finishers overall.  The first three successful participants in each category will receive souvenir medals of Gold, Silver and Bronze awarded by the Antigonish Highland Society.  In addition a number of trophies are awarded to commemorate the contributions of individuals who have strived over the years to preserve the sport in the local area.

 

We guarantee you will truly enjoy the experience - dare to prove us wrong!
