The Central Vermont Runners will once again host the annual New Year’s Eve 5K Road Race. This 15+ year tradition gives runners and their families yet one more way to ring in the New Year. The race course is challenging and not for the faint of heart. Starting on Court Street near the Pavilion State Office Building, the course is relatively flat for the first half mile, but then climbs uphill for the next mile, where runners get to turn around and run downhill to the finish.
Whether you are looking for a way to burn off those extra calories from the holidays, or start a 2018 New Year’s resolution, The Central Vermont Runners annual New Year’s Eve Road Race is the place to be on the afternoon of December 31st.
Happy Birthday this week to: Shari Carlson, Guy Page (New AG!)
If you don’t have a race or other event scheduled this weekend, look at the calendar at the bottom of this email. You have so many choices from 5K to Marathon to hike or bike options. I count 5 options Saturday and 2 Sunday and I am missing regional favorites like Hartford Marathon from the list.
The next CVR Newsletter will come out in late October before the CVR meeting on November 6. Get your articles and photos to Bob Howe by October 23.

Did you see the great Leafpeepers coverage in the Times Argus?
There is a fantastic photo and full page of results in Tuesday’s paper and a slew of photos including many familiar faces in this article https://www.timesargus.com/articles/graves-allen-win-leaf-peepers-half-marathon/.
We are very lucky to have good local media coverage of running. Jim Flint writes a regular running column for the Hardwick Gazette that I just found is now carried by the Adamant Coop. The Washington World regularly publishes our Fun Run results. And the Times Argus actually sends writers and photographers to our races for coverage. Go ahead and buy a paper once in a while to support the local coverage!
