New Year’s Eve 5K

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.

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.

Thinking about next year and the November meeting… The 2018 race schedule and the CVR/ORS series schedule and rules for 2018 are set at the November meeting. If you have any opinions about either that you would like presented, please contact Bob Murphy who will be heading up a committee meeting on October 23 to finalize a 2018 proposal.
