Lots of exciting things have been happening with the Comox Valley Road Runners.

At a recent Thursday Night Trail (TNT) run, Lene Curts (owner of Extreme Runners on Fifth Street) was recognized for her significant contributions to the community over the years.

“Yes, she helps people find the perfect pair of shoes, but more importantly Lene is super passionate about promoting community events, and sharing her knowledge and experience with others,” a CVRR spokesperson noted.

In other news, ‘The Cumby’ trail race on May 28 raised $9,000 for the Cumberland Community Forest Society. The CVRR presented the money to board members following a Sports Centre track workout and solstice barbecue.

The CCFS is making a final drive towards the purchase of the Space Nugget portion of the forest.  Further information is available at www.cumberlandforest.com.

Donations can be made at the CCFS website.
