Road Runners Memorial Run on Nov. 24

Event to be followed by awards and annual general meeting

The Comox Valley Road Runners annual Memorial Run goes Sunday, Nov. 24 beginning at the Florence Filberg Centre at 10 a.m. Registration is 9:15-9:45.

This annual run is in recognition of people we have lost. That might include club members such as Lorne Franks, John Siemens, Paul Ervin and Terry Nielsen, or you may want to run in the memory of someone else who was close to you. This is an event for people of all levels from walkers to runners (no dogs please). It is not about speed. You can walk, jog or run at whatever speed you wish.

Participants predict the time that they will run, anywhere from 3K to 10K, with the winners being the closest to their own predicted time. Maximum time allowed is 50 minutes. No watches or timing devices are allowed. CVRR welcomes all club members and the public to take part in the event.  There will be draw prizes as well as a perpetual trophy awarded to the winners. The CVRR AGM will follow the completion of the awards. Please come join us for one or both of these events.
