Run4Fun program returns for ages seven to 14

Comox Valley Road Runners offer fun and exercise at venues all over the Valley

Junior runners between the ages of seven and 14 will be hitting up seven different locations around the Comox Valley every Wednesday evening commencing April 15, 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 and hills.  Since the beginning of the program, we have had many returning runners and are so pleased that a couple of our former runners have stepped up to help as Junior Leaders.

Runners are guaranteed to have fun in addition to learning about the importance of a proper warm-up, pacing and good nutrition.  Regardless of their fitness levels or abilities, everyone will be getting fresh air and exercise while participating in a supportive and non-competitive environment.

The Run4Fun crew will targets trails such as Seal Bay (where there’s an exciting Poker Run), as well as the North East Woods, Simms Park and a few other diverse spots. Healthy post work-out snacks are provided and the grand finale always includes good old-fashioned games and relays.

This program relies on dedicated CVRR volunteers as well as generous sponsors including Extreme Runners, RE/MAX Ocean Pacific Realty, Rawthentic Eatery, and Quality Food.

For more information, drop-in to Extreme Runners on Fifth Street in Courtenay, visit the Comox Valley Road Runners’ website: www.cvrr.ca or email Mary Ann at mar08@hotmail.ca
