The 44th Annual Comox Nautical Days 4 Mile Road Race took place on BC Day, with over 100 finishers enjoying clear blue skies & a temperature ideal for running.

The run has been held every year since 1969 as part of the weekend’s Comox Nautical Days celebrations and is organized by Comox Valley Road Runners (CVRR). Runners start at the Town Hall and race through the residential areas of Comox adjacent to the Marina, with the finish along Comox Avenue at the site of the former Lorne Hotel.

The overall male & female winners turned out to be a repeat of last year, with Craig Odermatt finishing in a time of 20:50 and Melissa Ross in 23:17. Every age group from under 12 to over 70 was represented with Molly Keyes, aged 10 years, being this year’s youngest runner. Another double occurred with both the current & past Presidents of CVRR winning their age groups, Roz Smith (F60-69) in 30:50 & Wayne Crowe (M50-59) in 24:15 respectively.

CVRR Race Director Graham Garner said ‘This is a great family event & everyone seemed to be having a really good time. To enable the race to go ahead safely, it requires 40 people and I am extremely grateful to our club members, their families & friends for giving up their time & making it possible. I would also like to thank the generosity of our sponsors.

Please support the local stores who supported the race, who are Extreme Runners, Medicine Shoppe, Canadian Tire, Coastal Credit Union, Avenues Restaurant, Little Caesars Pizza, Benino Gelato, Toscanos Restaurant, Blackfin Pub, Longlands Golf Course, Blue Heron Books & Visual Sound & Audio.
