Special Notice about Event Shirt sizing:


Doctors Nova Scotia Youth Run

New for 2013 – all registered participants in the Doctors Nova Scotia Youth Run receive a short-sleeve technical tee (unisex sizing).

5k-10k-Half Marathon-Full Marathon

Short sleeve technical tee is again available in male and female models. For 2013, we have worked hard with our supplier to provide shirt sizing that more closely resembles North American sizing standards. And, stay tuned, again in 2013 we will be asking our Facebook followers to help select the ‘slogan’ to appear on the front of events shirts.
