Team CBC - Blue Nose Marathon Blog

We're on the homestretch, and getting super excited!

All of our hard work and determination over the past three months is about to pay off. We are only a week-and-a-half away from Blue Nose weekend and we couldn't be more excited.

Team CBC is 150 members strong and our diverse backgrounds is what makes our team so dynamic. We have walkers and runners from near and far; from Halifax to Cape Breton, from New Brunswick and Ontario, and even as far away as Massachusetts. We have kids running in the Youth Run and members in their seventies taking on the half marathon.

We couldn't be more proud of our team and look forward to running, walking and laughing with you on race weekend.

Say Cheese!

We plan to take a 2013 Team CBC group photo and are hoping to capture as many Team CBCers as possible.

Please meet us at the Halifax Metro Centre on Sunday, May 19 at 7:30 a.m. Many runners are starting as early as 8 a.m. so this is our only chance to gather for a group photo. Look for the CBC designated area in the lower bowl of the bleachers, which will be marked by red CBC banners.

Kit Pick-Up

Team CBC jerseys and kits will be available for pickup at the Goodlife Fitness Expo on Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18 at the CBC booth. Your Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon race kits (with your bibs) are also available at the Expo.

Please note kits will not be given out on Sunday, May 19. If you are unable to pick-up your kit before then, please let us know and we can make other arrangements.

Run/Walk- Thursday, May 9, 6 p.m.

We thought we would shake things up a bit this week and let YOU decide where you want to run/walk.

Please email Chantal at with route suggestions by Thursday at noon.

Don't forget next Thursday, May 16, there will be no run planned. Instead, we will do a casual walk to help us ease into race weekend.

If you have any questions, don't forget you can contact Chantal anytime at 902-420-4306 or by email.
