Who would have thought that people from all over the country would flock to Five Islands, Nova Scotia to run or walk through the mud? For the third year in a row, the response from people wanting in on the NOT SINCE MOSES event has been astounding. 
A truly unique experience, participants will either run 10K or walk 5K along the bottom of the sea around the Five Islands, in between 15 meter tides coming in and out of the Bay of Fundy.  Children can also take part in the Basket Run which is 100-500 meters along the shore and in the mud.
Although the 500 spots for this event taking place July 27 & 28th have already been filled, you are still able to put your name on a waiting list in case of any cancellations.  Another way that you can be a part of this unique experience is to volunteer.  Many volunteers are needed for this event and being involved is sure to be a memorable and fun experience.
The Basin Fund, which will receive the net income from this event, will also be accepting donations from the public. The Basin Fund, throughout the upcoming year, provides small grants for education for local kids, small business assistance, art and music programs and other seeding projects in the region.
