MONRUN is our 40-minute group run held at 6:30 pm every Monday night.
Note: We have altered or suspended the format of MONRUN many times through the pandemic. Please check our Covid-19 section for the latest MONRUN status.
When there’s daylight, we run on the BLT Trail. We sometimes run on the Chain of Lakes trail in early spring if the BLT Trail is still snow covered.
When it’s dark in the evenings, we run on the sidewalks along the St. Margaret’s Bay Road through Lakeside and Timberlea. Runners are encouraged to wear reflective gear and headlamps.
Out and back format
Starting at the BLT entrance at the Coke Plant in Beechville Industrial Park, we will run for 20 minutes, then turnaround and come back for 20 minutes. All runners start and finish at the same time and location.
Run with others and at your pace
We try our best to make sure nobody runs alone. Before the group run starts, we make best efforts to organize runners into smaller groups by desired running pace, ranging from just below 5:00/km to above 7:00/km.
Our starting location is always the same year-round. We meet at BLT Trail Head, Lakeside Park Dr, Lakeside, NS B3T 1L1 (located in the Beechville Industrial Park off the St. Margaret’s Bay Road).
