5 Peaks Cape Chignecto, Nova Scotia
24k, Sport, Enduro and Kids Races
Join us for this stunning, inaugural event. All 2017 entrants will get priority registration into the 2018 event, which includes a full, round the cape marathon (48km)!
At Cape Chignecto Provincial Park, towering 180 m (600 ft.) sea cliffs rise from the Bay of Fundy, while the world's highest tides lap at their base. Best described as a wilderness park, it has 29 km (18 mi.) of pristine coastline, deep valleys, sheltered coves, rare plants, and remnant old-growth forests.
*Please note: the 2018 event will have a 48km Ultra, which is a full loop of the park. Registration for the Ultra and the half marathon will be opened to 2017 participants first.*
