The second race of the 2016 Island Race Series was just as sunny as the first, and the Comox Valley Road Runners continued the series with some impressive performances at the Cobble Hill 10K on Jan, 24.
Mike Bridges led the CVRR with a time of 36:58 and a blistering 3:42/km pace. Several runners had PRs and/or won their age category – Brian Stewart won M55-59, Wayne Crowe M60-64, Les Disher M65-69.
Silvers included Marion Bryan W40-44, Danny Keyes M55-59, and Vince Brotherston M50-54. Registration is still open for Race #3 – the Cedar 12K on Sunday, Feb. 7. Visit www.vira.bc.ca for more info or to register.
The CVRR 5K running clinic also continues to be a success on Saturday mornings with educational tips from local health professionals and coaches and small running groups for all levels. New to the clinic this year is post-run yoga for those interested.
The clinic still has room for those interested: visit www.cvrr.ca for more info or just show up Saturday morning by 9 a.m. at the lower Native Sons Hall. The clinic wraps up with a 5km Fun Run March 19 that is open to the public.
