Adamant 20 Miler


Coming off of the US Olympic Trials Marathon, followed by the Boston Marathon, Leah Frost smashed her 2015 record by almost 8 minutes, finishing the hilly 20 Miler course in 2:15:34. Leah finished 1st overall, beating the first male relay team of Gavin Boyles and Mack Gardner-Morse by 50 seconds. The first male finisher was Jonathon Rea from Stowe in 2:17:17. The most hotly contested age group was the 50-59 women where Dot Martin edged out Sue Hackney in 2:39:51 vs 2:40:25. All participants enjoyed the post race feed of a variety of soups, bread, cheese and cookies. Proceeds benefit the Adamant Music School which hosts this scenic run.
Black flies were out in force to hassle the volunteers who valiantly stayed out there with the assistance of copious insect repellant.

Many thanks to the large volunteer force including:
Sigh Searles, Greg Wight, John Kaeding, June Burr, John Martin, Sean and Amy Murphy, Sue Emmons, Sarah Drapp, Newton Baker, Pam and Dave Erickson, Tim Noonan and Barb Flint.

Let the FUN (runs) Begin!


Looks like John Martin’s back!
Hi Runners,
It was not a bad day for the first officially timed by Darragh Ellerson CVR Fun Run of 2016. Fashion choices ranged from shorts to capris to full tights on the bottoms and T-Shirts to vests to jackets and hats on top. It looks like I was the only one to choose mittens.
Do you run hot or cold? Or maybe hot and cold–especially if you are a 40-50 something female?
