CVRR Memorial Run set

All are welcome to participate in annual event this Sunday

The Comox Valley Road Runners’ annual CVRR Memorial Run goes this Sunday, Nov. 18 at Lewis Park, beginning at the Salish Building at 10 a.m. Registration goes 9:15-9:45.

“This annual run is in recognition of people who we have lost,” a CVRR spokesperson said. “That might include club members such as Lorne Franks, John Siemens and Paul Ervin, or you may want to run in the memory of someone else who was close to you.

“This is an event for people of all levels from walkers to runners (no dogs please). It is not about speed,” the spokesperson said.

The format of the run will be anywhere from 3K to 10K with the winners being the closest to their own predicted time. Maximum time allowed is 50 minutes. No watches or timing devices allowed.

The event is free for all CVRR club members and $10 for non-members. “Please come join us,” the spokesperson said.
