Comox Valley Road Runners turned in strong performances at the Cobble Hill 10K.

Road Runners set the pace at Cobble Hill 10K

Comox Valley contingent led by Derek Vinge, who finishes first overall

Twenty-four Comox Valley runners competed with 480 others in the second of the Island Series races at Cobble Hill on Sunday, Jan. 25. The weather was cloudy, damp and about 10 degrees – in other words a perfect day for a fast 10 km  run. And run fast they did.

First place overall, and first place in his extremely competitive age group (30-34) was claimed by the CVRR’s very own Derek Vinge, with an awesome time of 32:46. First place finishes in their respective age groups were also accomplished by Vince Brotherston (50-54), Roger Plamondon (55-59), Roslyn Smith (65-69) and Ken Richardson (70-74).

Placing a close second in his age group (60-64) was Wayne Crowe. Danny Keyes completed  the medals for the day with a third place finish in the 55-59 age group. Just out of the medals, but with great times, were fourth-place finishes by Les Disher (60-69) and Marion Bryan (40-44) and a fifth-place finish by a delighted Sheila Van Gisbergen.
