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.
