The 40th Annual Bear Swamp Run on Saturday was the 8th CVR/ORO Race Series event. 57 runners enjoyed ideal conditions on Saturday. Lots of competition: particularly in Male 30-39 and Female 50-59. Thanks to Tim Noonan and his volunteers for an excellent event!

Jim Flint has updated the standings after this race. If you see any corrections, let Jim know. Seven more races to go; the next is Berlin Pond Five Miler. So not too late to get 6 races!

The first annual CVR Summer Outing on Sunday was a fantastic time. We had 13 enthusiastic participants including one of the newest members (George, at 9 months). We enjoyed Boulder Beach and beautiful weather, trail running, cycling, kayaking, swimming and, of course great burgers supervised by grill master Maryke Gillis. Can’t wait for next year!

Speaking of social events, it is time for another Julio’s night and let’s plan on this coming Tuesday, July 24 after the Fun Run. As usual we will take a headcount before the run and phone in a reservation. Hope you can make it!
