We are looking for players who enjoy a positive atmosphere and a challenging experience to play the amazing game of Boccia. A game of skill and strength similar to lawn bowling and curling. We support all levels of disability and have players of all ages, from 14 years and above.
Join 2010 Olympian Vaughan Chipeur and a cast of amazing talented skaters while they perform Beauty and the Beast on Ice, presented by the Racquet Club of Victoria. Saturday at 2pm and 7pm and Sunday at 1pm.
The 2018 Cumby will take place in the hills above the picturesque and historic Village of Cumberland, BC. This year’s event includes our signature 25 km ish race and new this year the 1/2 Cumby, a 13km ish race. Both races will include plenty of hills, single track trails and scenic vistas of Baynes Sound and Georgia Strait.
The event starts at No. 6 Mine Heritage Park in downtown Cumberland and proceeds through the Cumberland Community Forest and adjacent working forests. The 25 km route encompasses a steady climb through rich timberland and reclaimed logging areas, then leads runners through winding singletrack. For those interested in a shorter but still challenging race, the 13 km course will provide runners with a variety of terrain, trail surfaces, and views.
The Cumby is an event of the Comox Valley Road Runners, it is a wilderness event and participants should expect technical trails with numerous stream crossings, narrow bridges, and quick ups and downs.
Net proceeds of the Cumby go to the Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS).
Online registration opens February 14th, 2018. http://thecumby.ca/
