Monster Mile coming to downtown Courtenay

Fitness challenge on Fourth Street part of city's centennial celebrations

The Monster Mile is coming to downtown Courtenay.

Marc St. Jules, owner/operator of Cave Fitness in Comox, is helping Courtenay celebrate its 100th birthday by bringing his popular 4×4 Monster Mile Fitness Challenge to Fourth Street on Saturday, Jan. 24.

Fourth Street will be closed from 10 a.m. to noon for what St. Jules calls the “toughest 10 minutes in sports.” The event will start in front of Mudsharks and end at Zen Zero.

Teams of four — male, female, or co-ed — will perform pull-ups, dips, reverse pushups, pushups and a 400-metre sprint. Registration for the event will take place at 9 a.m. on the day of competition. The cost is $20 per person.

St. Jules is inviting firefighters, police, sports teams, fitness centres and all others to challenge one another by putting a team together, signing up and showing who is the fittest of the fit.

For more information and the rules, call Cave Fitness at 250-702-7188 or check out the event’s Facebook page at St. Jules Method 4×4 Monster Mile.
