Event Details

The Cape Breton Fiddlers Run is located on the beautiful island of Cape Breton, along Sydney’s waterfront. Known for its “giant fiddle”, Sydney is full of vibrant, friendly runners who will welcome you with a smile. This flat, paved course runs along Sydney’s downtown waterfront and serves as a Boston Marathon qualifying race. Runners will be joined by some of Cape Breton’s talented musicians to provide encouragement along the way.

The Cape Breton Fiddlers Run was established by the late Lydia Dickson in 2004. Since then, runners and walkers from across from Canada and beyond have come to take part in the 5km, 10km, half and full marathon, team-relay and Boston qualifying marathon.

Participants will enjoy a pre-race pasta dinner, and follow their run with a warm bowl of chilli. They will also receive a dry fit running shirt, and a one of a kind medal, designed by a local artist.

Part of the 2018 Cape Breton Roadrunners Point Series.
