CVR Birthdays this Week!
Happy Birthday this week to: Steve Sease, Mike Gillis, David Rye, Charlie Windisch, Henry Marcy, William Everett, Diana McTeague Scott, Miles Burr, Emma Kessler, & Cindy Allen!


SIGN UP TODAY!!!! The NSB 5K and 1 Miler are on-line only registration. NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION! Sign up now– Don’t get closed out from your next chance at CVR/ORS Series points and a chance to place at the Vermont Senior Games 5K.

Speaking of CVR/ORS points. Our intrepid points keeper, Jim Flint has already tallied up the Berlin Pond results in the standings posted on CVRunners.org. Wow, are some of the age groups competitive this year! The total number in the series is higher than ever and some people are already in the 480’s and 490’s. Those people will probably keep doing races to eke up their scores. There are 4 more opportunities to get 100 after all. Only Dot Martin has 500 sewn up already. I’m so glad I’ll be in the 60-69 next year. But by then Sue Hackney will probably be back out there again. Out of the frying pan and into the fire.
If you see any problems with your score, contact Jim Flint. If you don’t see an X next to your name in the volunteer column, remember you’ll need to get one to stay in the standings.

Happy New Year!

CVR Winter Long Runs take a Holiday Break because you all will be at NYE 5K either running or volunteering. You have pre-registered, right? If not, pre-register here now. There is even still time to mail it in and spend 47 cents instead of the $2.10 RunReg fee. Get your family, friends and neighbors to pre-register too. The snow tomorrow should make the course a classic winter event, unlike last year when people could actually run kind of fast.
Contact Ann Bushey if you can volunteer instead of running.

Reservations are still being taken for the Annual CVR Volunteer Appreciation Dinner and CVR/ORS Series Awards on January 26, 2017. Maybe Jeff Prescott has already started consulting with Steven Colbert for his monologue. Contact John Martin to RSVP and remember to check with Jim Flint if your name is not on this list and should be.

Hi All,

The Barre Heritage 5K looks like they had a pretty good turnout on a nice day. I notice an interesting weird skewing of participants from the results: Female participants under 50=22, Males under 50=3, Males over 50=6, Females over 50=0. What explains that? There were plenty of over 50 women racing with me at Colchester Triathlon that day. Results for Barre Heritage are up on CVRUNNERS.ORG. Thanks to new RD Jackie Jancaitis from the Rehab Gym and her great crew of volunteers. I didn’t hear of anybody getting lost this year.
