This year's Run4Fun program attracted a record turnout.

Record turnout for CVRR’s Run4Fun program

Forty-nine enthusiastic junior runners between the ages of seven and 14 have been having a blast around the Comox Valley every Wednesday this spring, as they enjoy the Comox Valley Road Runners’ (CVRR) Run4Fun program.

Run4Fun provides runners with skills to increase their endurance and learn to run in different terrain including trails, hills and even sand.  “We have almost completed the eight-week program, and it has been great to see so many keen runners, some ‘veterans’ as well as many new ones,” a spokesperson said.

Runners have been learning about the importance of a proper warm-up, pacing, and good nutrition. Regardless of their fitness levels or abilities, everyone has been getting fresh air and exercise while having good-old-fashioned fun in a supportive and non-competitive environment.

This program would not exist if not for our dedicated CVRR volunteers and our sponsors including Extreme Runners, Re/Max Ocean Pacific Realty, Rawthentic Eatery, Quality Foods and Jumpstart.
