Nautical Days 4-Miler 2022
52 years consecutive years makes this the oldest race in BC, running since 1971! This short 4-mile (6.4km) distance is geared toward the whole family. Elite runners love it too.
The Start line is Downtown Comox in the action of the Nautical Days Festival and blocks from the picturesque Comox Harbour. The rolling streets offer stunning views of the Salish Sea and Beaufort Mountain Range. Butchers Rd. is a spectacular stretch with a mix of Douglas Fir, Pine and other native species on both sides to give the feeling you are running through a forest – so refreshing during August heat. A prime downhill finish we all love in a race – that gentle, perfect grade that you can really open up if you wish to finish hard!
Join us for Comox’s premier running race this August long weekend!
