The Comox Valley RV Half Marathon offers one of the fastest courses in Western Canada with many PBs set here.
The course is a beautiful rural, out-and-back event with views of Mount Washington, Forbidden Plateau, and the Tsolum and Puntledge Rivers. The race is known for its tasty post-race food and lots of great draw prizes.
The half-marathon has a history dating back to at least 1986 when it was a 20-kilometre race. Some legendary names won it back then including five-time Royal Victoria Marathon winner Kelvin Broad and 1980 Olympian Mike Creery.
In 1995, the Comox Valley Road Runners (CVRR) extended the course to be a 21.1K half-marathon. It’s fast and with the right tactics, personal bests and qualification standards can be set there.
