Road Runners 5K clinic starts in January

It is that time of year again; time to think about your New Year's resolution:

EXPERIENCED RUNNERS SUCH as Ironman Don Blacklock all got their start somewhere

 

 

 

It is that time of year again; time to think about your New Year’s resolution: a commitment to personal goals, projects, the reforming or creating of a habit.

The Comox Valley Road Runners’ mission statement is: To promote the development and growth of running in the Comox Valley by providing education, leadership and social opportunities, along with programs and running events, for runners of all abilities.

The CVRR’s annual 5K running clinic is open to all levels: learn to walk, learn to run, learn to race. The clinic starts Jan. 14 and concludes March 17 with a 5K fun run. The 10 sessions include informational presentations from experts in our community as well as actual road running experiences.

Registration ($45 until Jan. 7, $50 after) is available though the Comox Valley Recreation Reporter, Lewis Centre, Courtenay (payable with credit card though this location) and Extreme Runners in Courtenay.

For more information, contact Leslie Dargie at www.cvrr.ca or 250-897-1213.
