This Friday is the last day to register online for the Cobble Hill 10K, set for this coming Sunday at 11 a.m.

Hosted by the Ceevacs Roadrunners, the race, which is the second in the Vancouver Island Race Series, starts and finishes at George Bonner Elementary School.

Runners can register online until 6 p.m. this Friday at www.vira.bc.ca, and in-person registration will be open on race day. Prior to Jan. 22, the entry fee is $30 for adults and $25 for students. Race-day entry fees cost $40.

“The 65 volunteers from the Ceevacs Roadrunners running club look forward to hosting over 500 runners to take on our flat, fast course,” race director Ian Milne said.

“With cool weather expected on race day we should see some age-class records set. It is also a good course for anyone looking for a personal best time for a 10K run.”

According to Milne, local runners to watch include Richard Light, the husband-and-wife duo of Jill and Cory Ramstead, and veteran runner Hazura Sangha in the 80-85 age group, running his 143rd Island Series event. Shawnigan Lake School will also have a large contingent competing in the junior age categories.
