Wolfville 8 Mile Road Race and 5K Fun Run

In conjunction with the 2015 Apple Blossom Festival, this year in addition to the "Old School" challenging 8 Mile Road Race course, we have added a 5K Fun Run to support Juvenile Diabetes Rearch and continue to offer a free 2.4k kids run afterwards!

The classic 8 Miler, known locally as "Wolfville, Spirit of the Valley 8 Mile Road Race" is named in memory of the late Steve Moores. Prior to his passing in November 2013, Steve Moores was the race director of the Wolfville 8 Mile Road Race for more than a decade, the founder of the Valley Harvest Marathon, and longtime Run Nova Scotia board member. Steve was a fixture and an inspiration to many in the running, cycling and skiing communities as a leader and believer in an active lifestyle.

In the competitive 8 Mile event, a minimum of $1,750 in total prize money for Male and Female Open Class top finishers is available as follows:

$500 First place M & F
$250 Second place M & F
$125 Third place M & F
The course record, set in 2014 is held by Brent Addison of Halifax with a time of 43m 44.7s
(3:29/km avg)

The Apple Blossom 5k Fun Run starts and finishes on Raymond Field Track and is flat and fast, so get ready for your own personal best! Net proceeds from the 5K event go towards the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation http://www.jdrf.ca/ An aid station is located near the halfway point on the Acadia Campus, with music and enthusiastic volunteers to keep you motivated!
