CV Road Runners Set The Pace - Cobble Hill 2015

Twenty four Comox Valley runners competed with 480 others in the second of the Island Series races at Cobble Hill last Sunday (Jan 25th). The weather was cloudy, damp and about 10 degrees, in other words a perfect day for a fast 10 km  run. And run fast they did. First place overall, and first place in his very competitive age group (30-34) was claimed by the CVRR’s very own Derek Vinge, with an awesome time of 32:46.

CVRR Starts 2015 On The Run

Comox Valley Road Runners had a great start to the 2015 season, as 24 club runners challenged the 8 km road race held in Saanich this last weekend. Hosted by the Prairie Inn Harriers Runners Club, CVRR athletes achieved first place in three age groups, second in two age groups and third in one more. Fastest runner from the Comox Valley was Derek Vinge, clocking 25:56 for an overall fourth place finish in a large field of 675 entrants. That’s an average speed of just under 19 kilometres per hour over 8 kilometres!

Clothing Order Update

Just got the word from Sugoi that the CVRR Clothing Order will not arrive before Xmas. Seems there's a back log of custom orders so we won't be receiving the goods until early in the New Year. No worries though, everything should arrive prior to the 1st race of the 2015 Island Race Series. 

Comox Valley Race Weekend Banquet

Pre-race Carbo loading dinner to be held in the Ballroom at the Westerly Hotel on Saturday, March 21 at 6:30 pm (doors open 5:30 pm). Tickets $25.


A team of elite masters from the Comox Valley Road Runners travelled to the Windy City to challenge themselves against 45,000 other runners at the 2014 Chicago Marathon. Chicago is known as a fast course with a number of world records being set there over the years. Race day brought almost perfect temperatures for racing, but a cool breeze negated the possibility of records falling this year. Kenyans once again dominated the race with Eliud Kipchoge winning the men's event in a time of 2:04:11, the eight fastest marathon ever run.
