A dedicated group of runners from the Comox Valley Road Runners decided to celebrate Mother’s day this year by running the Oceanside 10k in Parksville. Conditions were ideal, and the CVRR team raced exceptionally.
Danny Keyes was the top local finisher, placing fourth overall in 41:09. Showing what a great performance this was, he also won his age category. He was followed by Wayne Crowe, who finished sixth overall in 42:17. Crowe also won his age category. The top local female was Tracy Kennett, who ran 48:23. This put her just in front of Roslyn Smith, who finished in 48:46. Both Kennett and Smith also won their age groups.
Mother and daughter team Cindy and Shelby Blackmore ran together in the 5k event.

The next local event is the Canada Day Mile, which takes place down Fifth Street before the parade on Canada Day. This fun event is free, so it is a great opportunity to get the whole family out. More information is available online at cvrr.ca.
