Nautical Days 4 Miler


The Comox Nautical Days 4 Mile Road Race will once again be held in conjunction with this year’s BC Weekend celebrations at Comox Nautical Days. The race has taken place continuously for the last 45 years and, as such, is the longest continuously held road race in BC.

The event is family orientated, with the majority of participants taking part to enjoy the fun aspect of the event. However, for those wishing to take the event seriously it is a fast course over an unusual distance (4 miles = approximately 6.5 kilometers).

Not only did he complete his long-time goal of running a sub 3 hour marathon, but he also placed 9th overall in the race, winning his age group in the process. His age-graded result of 89% also placed him as a national class athlete in his age group.
