Victoria, BC (ISN) – The fourth race in the Frontrunners Island Race Series – the Cobble Hill 10K – takes place on Sunday, February 26 at 11 am. The race starts and finishes at George Bonner Middle School, Cobble Hill Road. The 10K is hosted by the CEEVACS Road Runners.
Runners can register online until midnight, Wednesday February 23 at www.vira.bc.ca or on race day. Race registration until February 23 is $25 for adults and $20 for students. Race day fees are $35 and $30 for students.
“We had to re-schedule Cobble Hill from January 19 because of the snow and ice, so we are pleased that CEEVACS are able to host it this weekend,” said Cathy Noel, President of the Vancouver Island Runners’ Association (VIRA). “It’s a relatively flat course so good training for runners planning spring half marathons, so I anticipate there will be some fast times.”
The Prairie Inn Harriers, Victoria lead the club standings with 1444 points, followed by Comox Valley Road Runners with 703 and Frontrunners Athletic Club with 628.
