Plan for CVRRTNW on Tuesday August 2nd 2016:

The main thing about this session is that it occurs a day after the 4 Miler. Hopefully those who do both will not push both. If you ran a hard 4 Miler, please gently cruise this session. I think a shortish track session would be a good idea for August 2nd: 1200m-1000m-800m-600m-400m-200m. Total 4200m. Everyone gets at least 2min rests after each run. Newbies should try the first 3 runs only. I'm sorry that I will not be there. Be good to the appointed leader!! :) (If the weather forecast is stinking hot, this plan will be changed before August 1st, so please check back. The track is not the place to be when it is stinking hot.)

LOCAL RUNNERS CRUSH CANADIAN RELAY RECORD

Three elite Comox Valley Road Runners teamed up with Michael Lax of Victoria to annihilate the Men's National 55-59 4 x 800 meter relay track record. Local athletes Wayne Crowe, Keith Wakelin and Danny Keyes accepted the challenge of their Victoria teammate to attempt to take down the previous National Record of 11:51 at the Christie-Phoenix Insurance Victoria Run Series meet held at the University of Victoria track on July 23.

LOCAL RACERS DO WELL AT SCOTIA HALF MARATHON

Comox Valley Road Runners were well represented at the 2016 Vancouver Scotia Bank Half Marathon. The race welcomes many of the top runners in the country to a very competitive field. It was a warm summer's day this year however, making the quest for fast times even more difficult on this challenging 21 km course. Kip Kangoga ran 1:07:03 to lead all racers along a scenic route that started on the UBC campus and wound along Spanish Banks, through Jericho and Kitsilano and over the Burrard street bridge, to finish in front of a cheering crowd gathered in Stanley Park.

CVRR is #1 at the 2016 VIRA Island Race Series

Here we are! The number one running club on the Island. Yup, thatʼs right. The Comox Valley Road Runners won the Frontrunners Island Race Series, crushing (in a friendly way) the Prairie Inn Harriers of Victoria (who had not lost to anyone since 2002) by 261 points. We had 34 members lace up their shoes for this very auspicious 10K race in Sooke yesterday; some were running injured, some hadnʼt raced in a year...or more!...a couple of non running spouses walked the course for the points and one of us, our Diane Palmason, came simply to run in her late Ernieʼs shoes.

FAST TIMES FOR ROAD RUNNERS AT FIRST HALF MARATHON
