Salmon Run

16648 Cabot Trail

Hit the ground running!

Here’s your chance to run or walk to help salmon conservation efforts in Cape Breton Highlands National Park.

For the first time, the National Park invites you to experience trail running during an organized event through a beautiful river canyon and stunning Acadian forest. Set during the International Year of the Salmon, the Salmon Run includes 5 runs that offers options for many trail running and walking levels and ages.

The two-day family event also includes activities such as fly tying and fly casting workshops, a Tap Room Talk, games for wee ones, and a chance to talk to salmon experts. If you’re feeling hungry, the “Stand and Stuff Your Face” food truck will sell food on site. Big Spruce Brewing will be on site with their “Tag, You’re It” beer, with $0.50 from each can sold this year going to support marine research and conservation for salmon.

Organised in collaboration with Nova Scotia Trail Running, the Chéticamp River and Margaree River Salmon Associations, SchoolsPlus, Big Spruce Brewing and Ocean Tracking Network.
