The oldest continually held running race in B.C. is fast approaching. The fun and fast Nautical Days 4 Mile Road Race is an integral part of Nautical Days festivities and this year’s race again promises to delight all challengers.

The race follows the challenging, traditional four-mile route around scenic Comox streets heading east from Town Hall as far as Torrence Avenue, up the hill to Noel, west on Noel to the firehall, right at Linshart Avenue and up to Bolt Avenue, then along Bolt to Anderton and left to Comox Avenue ending at the finish chute at the corner of Comox and Port Augusta.
