Plan for CVRRTNW on Tuesday August 23rd 2016:

(Note: Although I am no longer the official coach, I shall dictate the weekly sessions during this transition period, in order to have continuity. I may even show up from time to time!) I think August 23rd would be a good time to do a bit of Glacier Road 1250m running plus a bit of track running, in honour of the Americas Masters Games runners. It will be warm again so a short session is recommended. I propose 2x1250m Glacier out and back from Vanier HS driveway, then relocate to the track for 5x300m. Take at least 2min between all runs. Games runners should cruise this, and perhaps get quicker and quicker on successive 300m, so that the last 300m is a good strong (but not crazy) effort. Sharpen up!! All the best to those doing the Games.

Run the Rock Marathon, Half & 8K

Looking for a 'tune up' race for your fall marathon or 1/2 marathon main event?   Try the tough Run the Rock race that has both paved and gravel roads with plenty of hills!   You definitely will have bragging rights after doing this race.  If you are not quite up to this challenge, try the net downhill 8 km. race. See you there!

Vancouver Island Trail Series Long Course at Mt. Washington

Looking for a trail race challenge right here in our neighborhood?  The Vancouver Island Trail Series (formerly Gutbusters) has a new long course at Mt. Washington next weekend, August 13th at 10:45 am.  Check out the map on the website. Yes there are hills involved.  The shorter course is also an option. The food at the end of these races makes the hard work all worthwhile.
 

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.
