Ross wins at Comox race

The longest-running foot race in B.C. was held in Comox on BC Day prior to the Nautical Days parade.

The four-mile distance attracted young and old for this fun race in downtown Comox. One hundred and eleven racers completed the course in well under an hour. Victoria racer Craig Odermatt had the fastest time of the day in 21 minutes flat followed quickly in second place by Comox Valley road runner Neil Holm (21:27) and barefoot runner Robin Poirier in third place (21:36).

Melissa Ross of Parksville had an excellent race in 22:44 with CVRR runner Andrea Prager 27:17 and coach Kathy Rung 27:32 in second and third place women overall.
