The men’s winner of the 2022 Cobble Hill 10K was Logan Roots. The former Victoria resident, being in the military, has over the past five years lived in Whitehorse, Winnipeg, Kingston, and is now in the Comox Valley. He led from the gun to the tape clocking a 31:56 finish time.

Before the race started he was asked how his fitness is and he replied, “good enough to win, I hope.”

That is confidence for a runner whose club name is Run for Beer Comox Valley.

Jonathan Walker was nearly a minute back at 32:57 for second place. Dusty Spiller took third in 33:03. 

Roots is training for the Comox Valley Half Marathon with the ultimate goal this season being the Eugene Marathon in Eugene, OR.

“I am looking forward to attempting about a 2:25 down there and finishing in the Hayward Field,” said Roots.
