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.

This year’s race is scheduled for Aug. 6 at 9 a.m. sharp, starting at Comox Town Hall, 1809 Beaufort Ave. Registration is the morning of race day only from 8-8:45 a.m. in front of Town Hall. Registration fee is $10.

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.

Refreshments and awards follow the race, which is organized by the Comox Valley Road Runners.

There will be a prize for the best nautical-themed costume.
