The Comox Nautical Days 4 Mile Road Race will once again be held in conjunction with this year’s BC Day Weekend celebrations at Comox Nautical Days.
The race has taken place continuously for the last 45 years and, as such, is the longest continuously held road race in B.C.
The event is family orientated, with the majority of participants taking part to enjoy the fun aspect of the event. However, for those wishing to take the event seriously it is a fast course over an unusual distance (4 miles = approximately 6.5 kilometres).
The race starts at 9 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 4 at the Comox Town Hall, 1809 Beaufort Avenue, Comox. Registration is also at the start between 8 and 8:45 a.m., with entry fee $10.
There are age category awards, as well as a prize for the first male and female runner. There will be a plentiful supply of yummy post-race refreshments and some exciting draw prizes.
The race route is along Beaufort Avenue, Comox Avenue, Balmoral Avenue, Torrence Road, Noel Avenue, Linshart Road, Anderton Road and finishes on Comox Avenue. Please note for safety reasons strollers and pets are not permitted.
The event provides an opportunity to begin the day’s celebrations, taking in the parade and other entertainments immediately after. An ideal reason for family members to come out to support their loved ones!
The race is organized by Comox Valley Road Runnersand proceeds support many local charities, with numerous donations being made annually. The club will supply over 50 volunteers to ensure the race is both safe and successful.
