Hi CVR Members,

As I have explained before, there is a prize for 1st place overall male and female as well as a lottery for 2 prizes. To compete for the first place overall male and female prize there is a requirement that you send in a picture of your time (watch or stop watch) or a link of your run from Strava or other. So far I have only received one picture! So if you are competitive, please send a picture in so you can qualify! Send photo to Photo Time Entry.

By the way, it doesn’t appear that Elizabeth McCarthy has run the race yet so your chances of wining the lottery has to be much higher! Get out and run.

I believed we have answered all the questions that came in regarding the Fall Series. If there is anything else you would like to ask or comment on please let me know!

Basin Harbor 5K/10K
Bob Murphy informed me about the Basin Harbor 5K/10K that was run over the weekend. It was a live run with 8 corrals and runners starting through the chute every 10 seconds grouped by their expected finishing times. Strict Covid-19 guidelines were in place. You can go to the Basin Harbor website to read more details about how they did it. There were 59 – 5K finishers and 35 – 10K finishers. Bob Murphy and Dick Ferno were the only CVR members who participated. Dick won the 75+ age group with a time of 28:03 and Bob was second with a time of 30:10. Congratulations Dick and Bob!!
