Distance options are 1.5k, 3k and 4.5k on the "Mystery Route" in Simms/Lewis Park. 
Back around 1991 this race was established to remember on of our founding members, Lorne Frank, who was struck and killed by a car while bike training for a triathalon. Since then, the CVRR has lost many more wonderful members, both club and family, as well as other friends. The focus of this activity is remembrance. 
At race registration, you will choose your distance and predicted finish time. There will be prizes for the male and female runner finishing closest to their time, as well as door prizes. Runners are not allowed watches, phones or other timing devices. 

11:30am to 1pm
Our Annual General Meeting is a chance for all club members to hear from their executive where their club has been in 2019 and where we plan to be in 2020. A new executive will be elected, and we will see where the cash is flowing. Lots of chances to show your leadership skills over the next year if you accept the challenge. Our club is active and doing great things for the local community.

This weekend at the Toronto Waterfront Marathon, a new national benchmark was set. Cameron Levins of Black Creek, in his debut marathon, set a new Canadian Marathon Record.  With a time of 2:09:25, he smashed the previous record by 44 seconds. The previous record (2:10:09) was set by Jerome Drayton in 1975. The fact that the previous record had stood for 43 years is a testament to the magnitude of this achievement.

Cam is a former Olympian, having competed in the 5,000, and 10,000m distances at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. He is also a lifetime member of the local Comox Valley Road Runners club. Huge congratulations to Cam on this amazing achievement!

The 11th edition of The Comox Valley Road Runners’ 8 week Run4Fun program began April 5th and this year’s edition is welcoming 34 eager young runners. Even though the weather has been very wet so far, this years’ runners have been having a lot of fun making tracks in the mud!

The group meets Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:00 pm until May24th.  Participants of all abilities between 7 and 14 years old are joining in playing games, meeting new friends and finding great places to run in the beautiful Comox Valley.  Our enthusiastic volunteers are making this an experience to remember and hopefully bringing new recruits to this great sport!  Among our returning participants, two of our former runners have stepped up to help as junior leaders this year! The program encourages a healthy lifestyle including eating well, preventing injuries and exercising while having fun.

Run4Fun continues its commitment offering an educational, supportive, non-competitive environment to help kids develop their running skills, endurance, and self-confidence.  This week, the Run4Fun crew will be hitting the trails at both McKenzie Park and MacDonald Woods on a quest to find a hidden treasure!

We would like to thank our sponsors for their continued support each year: Extreme Runners, RE/MAX Ocean Pacific Realty, Rawthentic Eatery, and Sunshine Organics joining as a sponsor for the first time this year.

The count down is on for the graduation of 79 happy participants of the Comox Vallley Road Runners 5K Running Clinic. The festivities commence on Saturday, March 18 at the Florence Filberg Hall in downtown Courtenay. This race is open to all walkers and runners interested in doing a 5K event that is casual and friendly, a real beginners race! A costume prize for the best rendition of a St Patricks Day theme will be awarded before the race commences. Pace Leprechauns will be in the pack... theyʼre role is to hold a steady speed throughout the race and finish in their stated time. This is often offered in bigger races and serves the purpose of helping folks stay true to the time they wish to finish in. In our case this is a learning tool but can still offer a nice challenge for you to keep going or even finish faster than you thought possible. Many CVRR volunteers will be seeded through out the event ready to help or support at any time.

Whatʼs in it for you? The fun of a sporting event on a lovely Saturday morning with other like minded individuals. A sense of accomplishment for finishing 5 kilometers. Free beverages and food for all participants in the hall and a chance for some great door prizes. All of this for only $10 per person. Registration is 8:30 - 9:00 am in the Rotary Hall on race morning. The early start for Walkers goes at 9:30 am with the main start at 9:45am. Costume judging will be done at 9:15. Cheering is mandatory for all spectators, especially if youʼre related to a racer. Let the luck oʼ the Irish be with you.
