Since 1983, RNS has fostered and promoted road running all across Nova Scotia. From one running boom to the next, our mission has not wavered: to promote health, fitness, and camaraderie to people of all ages and abilities through the sport of road running. For close to 30 years, we’ve supported the unique needs and goals of anyone from Yarmouth to Sydney who has decided to lace up a pair of running shoes and join the thousands of other Nova Scotians running the roads.
RNS is a not-for-profit organization, a division of Athletics Nova Scotia, run entirely by volunteers. We offer a number of services that enrich the running community and enhance running events. For example, we organize the RNS Road Race Series — races from 1 mile to the marathon in locations across the province — providing guidance to race organizers and creating a festival atmosphere at each finish line. We also do community outreach, sharing our expertise and passion for running through seminars, clinics, and events.
