Halifax Independent School’s Annual Ocean Breeze Trail Run offers runners the unique opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a trail run without having to partake in specific trail run training. Hosted at the immaculately maintained Atlantic View Trail, runners who are new to trail running will find an easy transition from traditional paved surfaces to this spacious, crusher-dust surface.
All races being held during the Ocean Breeze Trail Run will offer participants the opportunity to compete in their event while, at the same time, enjoying the elements of nature unique to a seaside community. Imagine running a race, not amid traffic on the streets of a busy city; but amongst local flora and fauna, with fresh, clean, oxygen-rich air and stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. This is the Ocean Breeze Trail Run.
Safely managed by our official team of qualified volunteers and co-hosted by the Atlantic View Trail Association, the Ocean Breeze Trail Run promises to make for a great day.
We truly hope that you consider joining us, for the love of running, nature, or both when we are able to host this event again.
