Road Runners 5K Fun Run/Walk goes March 19

CV RV Half Marathon goes March 20 with top runners in town

Join the Road Runners on March 19 for their 5K Fun Run/Walk.

Do you enjoy running, but not too far? Do you have fond memories of running in a past race and the great feeling of accomplishment (not to mention the endorphin high)? Don’t you hate it when your friends talk on about activities they have just completed and your latest achievement was watching all of Season 6 of Downton Abbey in a single sitting? The Comox Valley Road Runners have a race for you!

This Saturday, March 19, the Road Runners will be encouraging our community to walk or run our 5K Fun Run/Walk in celebration with all those who have completed the annual 10-week CVRR Running Clinic.

Over the last 10 weeks, under the careful guidance of experienced runners, participants of the clinic have gradually increased their endurance and skills. Some have just gotten off the couch and are walking this distance for the first time, some are runners who wanted more technical information and coaching. In the end, the fun part is just doing your best and having your friends and coaches around to cheer you on.

The cost, for those who did not attend the clinic, is $10, which goes toward CVRR bursaries given to promising young runners, as well as various local charities. Sign-up is at 8:45 on Saturday morning at the Filberg Centre, with the race starting at 9:45. Healthy snacks for all, thanks to the nice people at Quality Foods, at the end of the race.

Just in case five kilometres is far too short for you, on the next day the CVRR will be hosting our Comox Valley RV Half Marathon, which will host some 600 of the Island and Lower Mainland’s best runners. More information on both these runs can be found at CVRR.ca.
