Shubie Sam's Groundhog Gamble

Taking place at Shubenacadie Wildlife Park - home of world famous weather prognosticator, Shubenacadie Sam!! For those unable to make the journey to Sam's place, there is also a virtual option! Register now for a great reason to get out during those cold winter days and participate in a 5km event. it?

What is the Groundhog Gamble?

Funny you should ask! The "gamble" here involves not knowing how far you will actually have to run until February 2nd, when Shubenacadie Sam either sees his shadow or doesn't. If he does NOT see his shadow, then the event is 5km. HOWEVER, if Sam sees his shadow on Groundhog Day, then it means 6 MORE km of running for you! That's right, you MIGHT end up running 11km!!

What's life without a little gamble?


Partial proceeds from the event will be donated to the Shubenacadie Wildlife Park, home of Sam and many other incredible animals (and wildlife related programs!!)
