Group Runs

The CVRR promotes and encourages group runs and welcomes runners to join us. Contact the person before coming out to confirm details.   If you wish to lead a run please contact and we can add your run to the list.

Please be advised that these are informal runs and you run at your own risk.  

These are not CVRR sanctioned runs. 


This group leaves Extreme Runners (436-5th St) at 9:00 AM sharp for Run or Walk or Run/Walk, all levels welcome! One hour (7 km+/-).

There will be at least one walking group, one to three walk/run groups, and five to seven running groups.
All groups except the walk/runners are out for one hour. The walk/runners will work up to one hour. No one is left behind.
New this year will be the starting place for the Bevan Loop. We’ll meet at the Comox Lake Dam like we used to.
