Nautical Days 4 Mile Foot Race ready to roll on Aug. 1

Nautical Days race

 

 

 

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

The event is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 1 at 9 a.m. sharp, starting at Comox Town Hall, 1809 Beaufort Ave. Registration ($10) is the morning of race day only, from 8 to 8:45 a.m. in front of town hall.

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; turning right on Linshart Avenue and up to Bolt Avenue; then along Bolt to Anderton and left to Comox Avenue ending at the finish chute in front of the former Lorne Hotel location at the corner of Comox and Port Augusta. There are great refreshments and awards held in the Lorne Hotel parking area after the race.

The race is organized by the Comox Valley Road Runners and sponsored by Jim Smiley of Re/Max Ocean Pacific Realty. The local business community and organizations generously donate each year with over $1,000 in prizes being given last year to runners and volunteers.

The race has seen many great champions over the years but it’s the people who come back year after year that make this race so much fun. Race director Karen Weller is thrilled to welcome this year’s entrants as well as a small army of volunteers who’ll cheer you on every step of the way. Come out and enjoy a great, grass-roots running event.
