Kids and spectators alike had a great time at the recent, third annual, Comox Valley Exibition Track n’ Trail Fun  Run, jointly organized with the Comox Valley Road Runners.

Under blue skies and warm temperatures, 60 young athletes demostrated the pure joy of running and being active. They completed three different trails of varying length depending on their age. First place finishers received a CV Exibition Midway pass, but everyone came away a winner.

In the Marshmallow group (5 and under) Everett Burch and Quinn Smits were the first boy and girl. For the Chicklets (6-9) Jack Bindernagel and Alison Leroux led the pack. Jack Milliken and Abbey Loach lead the group of Truffles

(10 and up) across the finish line.

Thank you to all of the generous sponsors who helped make this event a success: Extreme Runners, Jim Smiley (Remax Ocean Pacific Realty), Vince Brotherston (Majestic Mattress), Mary Ann Rolfe Counselling, Booster Juice, Alberni Outpost, Valhalla, Comox Valley Regional District, London Drugs, Mountain City Cycle, Thrifty Foods and Mary Bridges (Let’s Go).

Organizers were rewarded by the smiles of all of the happy young runners. They invite everyone to join  them again next year for this fun family event that is quickly becoming an annual tradition.
